The Girl He Left Behind

For many years, I shed many tears
Wondering why you had to go;
You left without a mumbling word
You didn't even let me know.
Somehow, I believe you had that feeling
Your life was about to end;
But you didn't have the time to tell me
That day I lost a friend.
I am the girl you left behind
With missing pieces to her heart-
I am the girl you talked to every day
Before you permitted your day to start.
You know, the girl that called your house
All throughout the day.
Sometimes, your mom would pick up the phone
With an uproarious, "Hello!"
The girl would back away...
Now that you're gone
I and your family have grown
Very, very close.
I am the girl that you left behind
But I know God is Who needed you most.
