It’s another quiet night for me.
Now that you all are gone,
I can hear so much alone in this place.
This place I’m not sure to call home.
This place I can never escape,
No matter how far I run away from it.
I’m trapped in this place forever,
This prison will forever keep me locked away from the outside world,
But I’ve learned to be okay with it.
It’s unbearable to be here sometimes,
Especially at night.
It’s so quiet at night without you all here.
Sometimes I think about your voices,
Sometimes I miss hearing them,
Sometimes I’m thinking about my own thoughts,
Sometimes I’m thinking I should talk to somebody
And get some help for my loneliness,
But then I shake the idea out of my mind
Because sometimes I can get through the night,
If I try my best not to think about you all too much.
You all simply had to go,
You all had to go to another place.
I hope you all understand
And know that I miss you all very much.
I miss the joyful and loving atmosphere that was once in this place.
I miss the good times we had together,
Sometimes I wish we could have those days together again,
I miss them so much,
But then I remember they had to end,
They were never meant to last forever,
And I think you both knew why they had to end.
Why I had to put an end to those days.
Now that you both are gone,
I only have quiet nights.
I’ve accepted the quiet nights,
And understand there will always be quiet nights for me.
That will never change for me.
Every night will always be another quiet night.
