Tragedy + Time

It is often said that tragedy

When given time equals comedy

But sometimes there is no remedy

For the most painful of memories

I know no matter how much time

Will pass now I will never find

Peace within my heart or mind

For the love that once left me behind

You never read the words I wrote

Or heard the songs I sang for you

I never had the chance to show

How much you always meant to me

Now every time I hear your name

I am overcome with crippling shame

I know that I was not to blame

But that does not stop this pain

If only I’d had let you know

The songs I sang for you

If only I’d had the strength to show

The words I wrote for you

I could wait an eternity

But I know this tragedy

Will never become comedy

I’ll never find a remedy

For my most painful memory
