I am

I'm the sun that sets down on the horizon
Obscuring the dying light
Carrying the hopes away
Leaving you all alone

I'm the burning tree in your garden
The dead leaves rotting on the ground
Infecting your hands
Making you sick

I'm the stone that sinks in the waters
Quickly going down to the cold bottom
Obstructing your lungs
Burying you alive

I'm the smile that has gone
What once was and now is not
I'm not here anymore
I'm forever departed
