phantom heart

How do you choke down your sorrow

When someone you love fades away

they wince in pain, so sit still all day

and the mind tick tocks away, away

so I cry, the phantom heart bleeds

I swallow my tears mixed with snot

push it all down to that hollow spot

then plaster a smile on my face

and say Jesus loves me and you too

today a friend said, I pray God claims her

I hope he comes soon

She’s too good a person

To die that way

to die that way
