The WaitI have told myself to forgetThose good old memoriesBut times have changed for worse, it seemsAnd they’re all I have leftThe days continue passing byFrom sun to moon I waitFor memories my mind replaysTo be before my eyesHow come the best things are so briefThe worst things last for yearsThe past is gone, future’s unclear,And present’s full of griefWhy it is so easy to seeThe darkness in your lifeWhen storm-clouds help the sun to hideRain ruins everythingIt is also hard to noticeThe way the sun will shineWhen the moment I see the lightIt's covered in darknessLeaving sunshine as just one moreof those good memoriesThat I cannot again receiveYet still I'm waiting for
