Epitaph

One Day You Will Suffer

"It can't all be sunshine and roses for as one door shuts another one closes"

That excess pint

That word mis-timed

That men are men and real men fight

One day you will suffer

That unpaid debt

That sure thing bet

That time you found the rent was spent

One day you will suffer

That journey's end

That long lost friend

That inability to make amends

One day you will suffer

That long cold night

That last goodbye

That that is all there is to life

That one day you will suffer

There is no happy ever after

Hollow is the sound of laughter

Joy is but a temporal buffer

To the day when you will suffer

So I held on, held on, held on tight

For you were one of my brief delights

Yes I held on, held on, held on tight

Made you suffer me in your life
