Harder than hard (a farewell from my father)

it’s harder than hard
excruciating
there are no night and no days
nothing remains here

it’s harder than hard
excruciating
echoes of love
drained dreams remained here

all the broken promises
all the tainted memories
all the made-up vanities
all the fainted braveries

all the gaslighted abuses
all the heart burnt oh the bruises
all the forgotten embraces
all the life you took from me

I let you free
I set you free
now

I forgive
just like Jesus
fatherless
no-one’s child

You couldn’t know
the mess you made
unable
and cursed for life

I forgive
just like Jesus
abandoned
through the time

you’re somewhere else
I can’t see you
and it’s breaking
all my heart

it’s harder than hard
excruciating
there are no night and no days
nothing remains here

it’s harder than hard
excruciating
echoes of love
drained dreams remained here

echoes of love
echoes of love

remember the good times

remember the good times

remember the holy ground

where we stood and stayed

danced and kissed

through the night

 

remember the good times

but

all the years are gone now

remember the good times

but you

never said why you left

remember the good times

how we dreamt and yet survived

and

how we broke everything

what was nice and so dear

now we know every pain

 

all the nights and all the days

I’m just a wanderer in a desert

what’s my fate and indemnity

nobody knows, nobody knows

all the nights and all the days

I’m just a wanderer in a desert

what’s my fate and indemnity

nobody knows me, nobody knows me
