When the darkness comes,
I wonder why.
I wonder why it ever had to happen.
As I lay here,
On the cold rough pavement,
I pray he has found peace.
As the darkness closes in,
I hear sirens.
I see flashes of red and blue lights,
That pierce the blanket of the night.
But I know they won't get here in time.
As my thoughts slip away,
And I fall asleep for the last time,
I wonder if he is finally happy now?
I hope so.
I really do.
