I laughed at your jokes
You laughed at mine
The trees swayed in the early morning breeze
As light rain fell on the rooftops
I noticed none of these.
you dropped me at work
I kissed our daughter goodbye as you drove off
I didn't turn back as I looked forward to the day
I wish I had
The memory won't go away.
I plopped my stethoscope on my neck
My attention was now for my patients
I would give them my best today
Like I had sworn to do
Yes, nurse bring him in
Hello sir, how do you do?
Yesterday's gone, oh how It hurts to recall
The sudden realisation, the panic, the phone calls
Shut in this room with only one window
Colleagues in strange suits, keeping a distance
I see the fear in their eyes
I can barely see their hands.
It seems unlikely I would see you again
Our daughter...oh the pain
Where is the sun? How I miss it
All I see is open sky
What do I do, what can I say?
It hurts, why oh why?
