To Lose A Child
by Bob and Alex Eichen
Lying in bed
The door to my room is open
I can see people walking in the hall.
Sitting in a chair
By the window, looking out
I can see people walking down the sidewalk.
Standing on an empty playground
Looking out through the chain link fence.
I can see cars driving up and down the lane.
I'm dying, but I'm not dead
I'm dead, but I'm still breathing.
That's how it feels
That' how it feels
When you lose a child.
