Expected, yet so unexpected

Every day, every month, every year
I knew
Every time I came to see you,
I knew
I would have to say goodbye,
to you.
Any time could be the last
with you.

My mind knew you would have to go,
My heart never believed it would be so.
A part of me thought, you would always be there,
Sitting there writing, in your old wicker chair.

But the day came and you were gone,
I couldn’t believe you weren’t around.
Now everything is changing in a way
I’m not ready for today
But its happening anyway.
Death, even when expected,
When it comes,
its unexpected….

Everybody said you lived a full life,
I knew.
Everybody said you were a great man,
I knew.
I regret I never said so straight
To you.
I never said I wanted to be just
Like you.

My mind knew you would have to go,
My heart never believed it would be so.
A part of me thought, you would always be there,
Sitting there writing, in your old wicker chair.

But the day came and you were gone,
I couldn’t believe you weren’t around.
Now everything is changing in a way
I’m not ready for today
But its happening anyway.
Death, even when expected,
When it comes,
its unexpected….

I, still think, in your old wicker chair,
I will find you.
I will eventually be able to say goodbye,
to you.
Now all of us are a little lost,
without you.
All we have are our sweet memories,
with you.

My mind knew, you had to go,
My hear never believed it would have to be so,
A part of me thought you would always be there,
Sitting there writing in your old wicker chair.

But after that day, you were gone
I am finally starting to accept that you aren’t around.
Now, everything has changed in a way,
I’m slowly getting used to, day –by-day.
It’s all happening anyway.
Even when you accept it,
When it happens, its unexpected……….
