    The hurt words
    That cut like
    A butcher knife
    Slice and dice
    A piece of our life
    Until there is silent

    A slow deaf has unfold
    That leaves the heart
    So very cold
    2 becoming
    Stranger once again
    No longer a pine tree
    In the wind
    That bends
    When the wind
    Blows again

    Lost in the anger
    Of the hurricane
    That comes and comes
    And yes comes again

    Dark clouds floats
    Overhead
    Blocking the sunshine
    That once cast a rainbow
    That brought a smile
    So mellow
    Is now shield
    No winners
    Just losers
    Just losers
    Just losers
    I

    Blue, this grim forecast is heartfelt. You are a brilliant light in an otherwise dark existence.

    And Overcome We Shall...
