Nothing In Return

There was a time once
A time of youth
A time of strength
No fear
No stress
No fuss
No muss
I long for that time
Life was so easy
A time of rock and roll
When the music
Was loud and heavy
I close my eyes
And I remember
When I was
At the edge of heaven
While angels sang to my soul
But life isn’t fair
And the world can be mean
I am but a traveler
In this hurricane called life
I blame only myself
For the way I am
I’m at the point of no return
My darkest days
Are filled with silence
I will die
Trying to convince my shadow
That I am someone worth following
Everybody knows
That I feel it still
I hold on
To what might have been
If I ever feel better
I will let it happen
And ask for nothing in return
