The tether snaps when it’s time,
Now you are no more a friend of mine,
The emptiness is still, when you,
Lose someone so close, another time.
The one who knew you morning day,
When under the stars you always lay,
That feeling no more,
When you lose someone close.
Now you stand there like strangers,
Eyes glazing over, with a smile in cages,
When a memory pasts you,
And when she remembers it too,
But you remain standing there,
And let the last of the tether,
