You've Been Gone A Long Time

You've been gone for a long time now, yet I still catch myself thinking of you.
You were taken away before your time was done
I am trying my hardest to become the best for both of us
Heartache and pain has come and gone
You were ripped from our lives with n hopes of returning
Lost inside your mind, you were gone before it began
My rambling mess does not make sense, but I know you still hear me, still see me
You've been gone to long now
All that is left of you is me and I am falling fast
Raise your up and catch me falling
You are here I feel your presence
I need your strength to help carry me through this pain
You've been gone a long time now, yet I still catch myself thinking of you
