I sit here in tears when I think of your words
"The sooner they go, the sooner they come back"
No one every understood What that meant
Except you and I who smiled at their confused eyes
You raised me and gave me all I ever dreamed of
You were there for me when my mother had to leave miles away
You always listened to me cry and I somehow knew you cared
When I grew older I had to leave across a sea
You just smiled and, with sad eyes, looked at me
You gave me a hug and told me our famous words
"The sooner they leave the sooner they come back"
You came to visit me once
I showed you everything I learned about sadness, pain and life
You knew I'd have no one here
When your daughter told you "she's a happy child"
You knew it was all a cover-up and it was all a lie
Now you're back at "home," you're getting sicker every day
I can't be there to heal your heart when it aches
They didn't tell me you were sick - I accidentally over heard
Now that I know, you can't imagine how it hurts
I'm not there if anything happened, God forbid,
Not there to makes your wishes become reality,
Not there for even one last kiss.
I pray each day you get better soon
It's not your time to enter heaven's gate - its not your turn
If god decides to take you up and make an angel out of you
I'll understand it's for the best, but I don't know what I'll do.
If I have to see you going away all I can think of are your words -
"The sooner they go, the sooner they come back."
