Theo van Gogh - Absent Friend


Voor Theo, maar ook voor alle andere
Absent Friends
(Onze Allerzielen en Allerheiligen)


Time heals wounds, they say.
Time takes the pain away.
I wonder why it never happens for me.
It's years since you went away
but I miss you night and day.
Why you had to go is a mystery to me.

What seemed important then
becomes trivial when
Fate deals the card
that forces your hand.
All the places we'd been,
all the things we had seen,
No more in the future;
it just isn't planned.

It's all very strange,
but when you went, I changed.
It just seemed to happen with the passing of each day.
I don't understand.
Is it part of a plan?
Does one person grow
when another fades away?

Small things you'd do
weave pictures of you.
They're printed for life
on the back of my mind.
I was always so sure.
Your life was so pure.
To the faults and to bad times
a loved one stays blind.

I always found that
when you were around,
You helped me with worries
and eased all my fears.
You always had time
for problems of mine,
A shoulder to cry on,
a listening ear.

Time heals wounds, they say.
Time takes the pain away.
I wonder why it never happens for me.
It's years since you went away
but I miss you night and day.
Why you had to go is a mystery to me.

Lyrics Keith Hancock
