(By Nation Son Holmes)
How does one express sorrow
There are really no words
When there are no more tomorrows
No more love
No more memories to borrow
Your heart is broken
Your soul is hollow

Sometimes life is not sweet
It’s very short
It will beat you down
And leave you hurt
You can not breathe
In (the universal) judgment's court
Confused you become
And decisions are hard to sort

How does one really express sorrow
You leave it in God’s hands
For He is today and tomorrow
