Lost & Gone


Divorce papers on the counter

Written on the wall "love was here" from 1999

Lost & gone

Like the faith the man had, turned into fear

Forever lost

Leaving this place

Bag's are packed

His wife's face in tears

Knowing what has happened

Will not bring him back here

Found an envelope with his name on it

Opens it up

Directions for him

" Go find yourself, do not waste this "

William Simmons leaves this town

A soft wind follows him out

His divorce papers fall to the ground

Leaving everything behind

He walks away

With " love was here " from 1999 written on the wall

The faith the man had, turned into fear

Lost & gone
