You Left Flawlessly Without Saying Farewell

You left formally without saying farewell

You departed thinking that you will be well
In a few days, after drinking a few glasses
Of water. That's a shame, like a season passes
You’ve moved on. You died without saying nothing
This is sad, when hope evanesces and the sun is shining
Depression is a serious mental and lethal disease
Now, friends and relatives are in tears and the bees
Are passing by, making a morbid mourning sound
Death will never be a happy occasion. Profound

Are the invisible wounds that only time can heal
You left without eating and enjoying your last meal
And without sipping your last beer. No strange farewell
No loud fanfare, no adieu, no goodbye and no last email.
