Change

Everything still looks the same

Everyone’s still here

There’s not a thing that’s really changed

            When held up to a mirror

The sun still shines, the rain still falls

            The grass and foliage grows

The river runs, the flowers bloom

            The same old wind still blows

The clock still ticks, each hand still moves

            Each moment gone for good

And time goes on ever as quick

            Just as you hoped it would

The faces all appear the same

            Each one betrays no change

As lives go on as ever lived

            With every new exchange

Not one thing here has seemed to change

            Not since you went away

Except my heart, which has a hole,

            I fear may always stay
