As if never here now a legacy erased
By those that should care and miss an embrace
A last goodbye that to a soul they all spurned
Will forever be a lesson I hope to have learned
For though they may fight over that they were left
They don’t see what was lost and makes them bereft
Blinded by greed or their shadows of the past
They refuse now to find what once held them fast
But to be lost it must be forgotten by all
Not just those that would allow a life to fall
So as once I sat on a pew to say goodbye
Stories of you I now promise to tell until I die
