A poem of heartache
What happened to the days of my youth?
When everything was about innocence and truth
Oh, the excitement of my first love
The joyful nights of caressing and hugs
Until that one night when the moonlight was so dim,
And even though I begged, I couldn’t stop him.

How many times must I die?

My mom was a beautiful lady so young and so alive
My father was a strong man, so handsome and proud
They were killed by a drunk driver when they were just twenty five.
Yet, another dark cloud.

How many times must I die?

Now that I’m older, I have a son of my own
I received a letter from his unit saying he wouldn’t be coming home.
They said he fought so gallant and so brave
The words seem so hollow as we lay him in his grave.

How many times must I die?

And as I grow old, they tell me I am deathly sick,
And even though I am still in the world, my spirit has already left.

How many times must I die?
