In Other Words — Voices


You took your life, but to me you’re still alive.

I hear your many voices whispering in my ear.

Your quiet voice, your happy voice, your sad voice, your sultry voice.

But while your life was ephemeral, ending way too early,

The sounds of your voices will be with me for eternity.
