The Chronicles Of Crystal Black Pt. I

These days it seems as though
Crystal has been leading a normal life
But there is still many things that we don’t know
That still trouble her at night
Every day she sits in the corner of her dorm room
Staring at old photos of her dad
That brought back many memories
Of all the good times they had
Then reality hit her and she painfully remembered
That he tragically died of lung cancer
Because he smoked a lot of cigarettes and
Every now and then she’d interrogate God for the answers
It seemed like it was only yesterday
That she was standing in the pouring rain
With an umbrella over her head and a veil over her face
Shedding tears of emotionally excruciating pain
Words of sorrow escaped everyone’s lips
Only to break each other’s hearts
Tossing black rose petals on top of the casket
Trying desperately not to fall apart
Tears shed from Crystal’s eyes
And onto the picture frame
For she missed her father terribly and
Without him things just weren’t the same
When she graduated from high school
He was right there by her side
When she was going away to university
He was standing there waving goodbye
He was the one that taught her to walk and crawl
Sing her lullabies when she would cry
He was a hard working man and he did all that he can
To keep the family alive
Now that he’s gone it’s time for Crystal to move on
Time to start fresh on a clean slate
Because one day she knows she’ll see her dad again
At the entrance to Heaven’s gates
