You Left In The Lightning And Rain

You Left In The Lightning And Rain

 

You left in the lightning and rain

Without a chance to say good-bye.

You left in the thunder and pain

 

With your friends on a country lane.

You were driving I can’t deny.

You left in the lightning and rain.

 

Crossing the tracks, struck by a train.

Sudden and senseless way to die,

You left in the thunder and pain.

 

A force seatbelts could not restrain.

Your face uplifted toward the sky,

You left in the lightning and rain.

 

Tufts of hair gone and bits of brain,

Mangled, bloody, quietly you lie.

You left in the thunder and pain.

 

Life now seems brittle and insane.

You were my “catcher in the rye”.

You... left in the lightning and rain.

You... left in the thunder and pain.
