I Don't like Losing Pieces

by Thomas K. Hunt

The phone’s been ringing all night and day
Friends and family telling me someone passed away
I see the numbers as they vibrate with no ring
I’m not ready to answer
I don’t want to know a thing

Every time I answer I lose a piece of me
So now I don’t answer so I can be all that I can be
It’s the part of life that we all have to go through
Someone has passed that was very close to you

There are no words of comfort though many try and they are kind
Only you know of your sorrow as it encompasses your mind
You remember their faces from a time gone by
It preys on your mind you never said goodbye

Tears will be shed as you lose another piece
You need to hold someone but they’re all out of reach
You sit alone with the sorrow as it shrouds your mind
You try to take your mind to a happier time

The mind will heal but the heart never will
There are now empty holes that will never be filled
New memories will be formed that will make you laugh or cry
You’ll be losing pieces right up to the day you die

The phone’s been ringing all night and day
Friends and family trying to tell me someone passed away
I don’t need that news on such a beautiful blue sky day
I don’t like losing pieces
What more can I say
