I know that look

in your eye.

That you want to cry,

that you’re scared to die.


But have no fear, Dear.

Do you know why?

All your troubles will pass by,

I promise you that is no lie.


Life is not easy

or a piece of pie.

So look to the sky…


and take a sigh…


and don’t be shy…


To say, “Oh my!”


There’s no need to be afraid to say goodbye,

because (ultimately) in life there are no ties.
