Jane Said

Jane said, something about leaving
How the hardest moments
Are just before you’ve gone

And I’ve learned
A little about grieving
Just when you think it’s over
You find it’s never really gone

I knew you’d be leaving
I knew that you’d have to go some day
But I kept denying that you…couldn’t stay

And bob said, something ‘bout no crying
But there’s just no denying
Sometimes you’ve got to shed those tears
And I’ve learned a little about dying
There’s just no way of knowing
If you’ve got minutes or got years

I knew you’d be leaving
You’d probably be the first to go
We turn to the sunlight
But life…..casts a long shadow
(rep last line)
