When I was young, I had real friends

Friends who had excess love to lend

When the time came to leave, I left 

Tried to forget, concience bereft.


The year was 2006

When she sailed cross the river Styx

She looked at me through the headline

Memory had gone; I felt fine.



Seven years later they return

The headlines never change, I learn

I watch the news and see her face

Remember I can't take her place.


If I bring up the topic anew 

When I whine to myself in the night

I mumble in annoyance: 'Fuck you.'
