In a little while from now,
If I'm not feeling any less sour.
I promised myself, I'd treat myself,
And visit a nearby tower ..........
And climbing to the top,
I'd throw myself off,
In an effort to, make clear to whoever,
What it's like when your shattered .......
Standing in a lurch,
In a church with people saying .....
My God, that's tough, she stood him up,
No point in us remaining .......
I may as well go home,
I decided on my own,
Alone again, naturally.

It seems that only yesterday,
I was cheerful, bright and gay.
Looking forward to, and who wouldn’t do,
The role I was about to play.
And, as if to knock me down,
Reality came around,
And without so much as a mere touch,
Put me into little pieces.
Leaving me to doubt, all about God and His mercy,
Oh, if He really does exist,
Why did He desert me?
And in my hour of need,
I truely am, indeed,
Alone again, naturally.

It seems to me that there are more hearts,
Broken in the world that can’t be mended,
Left unattended, what do we do?
What do we do?

In looking back over the years,
And whatever else has occurred.
I remember I cried when my father died,
Never wishing to hide the tears.
At sixty-five years old,
My mother, God rest her soul,
Couldn’t understand why the only man,
She had ever loved had been taken.
Leaving her to start, with a heart so badly broken,
Despite encouragement from me,
No words were ever spoken.
And when she passed away,
I cried and cried all day,
Alone again, naturally .....
Alone again ................................. naturally.
