The Loss

By Bruce Clifford

The few of us who march on
Those leftovers who carry on
For those who died and left someone behind
Missing links of the sub-divide

The few of us who gained a new
Each broken trust and points of view
Many have fallen, but some marched on
Feeling the loss, yet still carry on

The loss is felt in the heart
The loss is felt by many
The loss canít go away
The loss never comes gently

The loss is seen all around
The loss turns lives upside down
The loss wonít fade away
The loss forever stays

The few of us who knew them
Those who really got to know them
Those who were really believed in
Time never stands still

The loss is felt in the heart
The loss is felt by many
The loss canít go away
The loss never comes gently

The loss is seen all around
The loss turns lives upside down
The loss wonít fade away
The loss forever stays

The few of us who were there
Those fortunate enough to care
For those who are gone and no longer here
The loss carries on and on I fear
