I was the sun that shone throughout your day,
Spreading light to your path and shinning your way.
During my nights thoughts of you kept me warm.
You came before everything from the day you were born.
Desperately I wished to shed light through your shadow,
But you lost me somewhere and became shallow.
I have tried my best to shine for you,
Now I fear those days are through.
My light was powerful but now dims and must die.
I haven’t the strength to continue and try.
You must travel without me as you go on your journey.
Leaving me alone, now faded and lonely!
Life is the killer not the choices we make.
Walk tall and strong, never regretting this mistake.
