So Long


Feeling lost and alone
And without one word
I hung up the phone
Having heard what
No one wants to hear.

So long my old friend,
I will remember you
And the things we used to do.
Who knew this was the end.

I went to the refrigerator,
Found what I was looking for.
Stepped out the front door
Drank that cold beer while
Watching the sun disappear.

So long my dear friend.
I will remember you
And the things we used to do.
Until we meet again.

No song will I sing,
No tune can I hum.
At the close of day,
Only the unspoken trial,
A memory gone numb.

So, so long my friend,
I will always remember you
And the things we used to do
Where we will do them again.
