Why should all this be happening?
I am here, do not grieve over me
Yes I have been gone for long
Too long that is…
But not long enough to conclude
I no longer set foot on earth.
Come on Jeff! Look at me
I am here, Jenny, this is me
Please don’t wear that long face
It saddens me you know
Who is that in the beautiful cascate
He seems to be more like me
No this can’t be happening
Can’t anyone here my voice!
I had gone abroad for many years
Never calling home but having a reason
A reason so good enough
My job simply could not allow me.
I also made a beautiful family
But could not match with my old self
I missed you all, every day
I am here now, but just as an image.
No one can see me
I see everyone I know
Though looking old and beaten
I see my body being lowered
Down to earth, the red earth
Everyone in tears, but I can’t
Hold on it for them, I am forgotten.
