When I’m gone

When I’m gone

‘You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone’

My favorite line from the song.

You have me now. Here I am now.

If you love me, tell me now;

If you want me, tell me now;

because a day will come and you won’t have me.

You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.


We lived together, you were my next door neighbor;

We saw each other everyday; you were my classmate;

We worked together, ate at the same table;

Not once did you tell me. Tomorrow, you said to yourself;

I whispered to myself, you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.


Days passed by, and it was just the daily life for us;

We both felt it, but nothing was said;

I was ignorant, you were timid;

Little did we know, that death was closer than we had thought;

The day came, and the cold hands of death took me away.


It’s my funeral, welcome you all;

Hey look who it is, it’s you, with a well written speech in your hands;

You go ahead to tell me a lot of words I never heard you say;

You say how much you regret not telling me when I was alive;

You were in tears and only had one wish: to turn back the hands of time;

You had me right in front you, till you lost me to the cold hands of death.

Now I’m gone, now you miss me.

I did tell you, didn’t I?

You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.
