Happy That You're Gone

They say when someone you love dies, they go to a better place. Is it true...?

I’m happy that you’re gone

Not because I wanted you dead

Not because I never cared

But because all hate, sadness and pain is gone


I’m happy that you’re gone

Not because I don’t want you by my side

Where you belong to love me, to catch me if I slip or slide

But because your journey to peace is on


I’m happy that you’re gone

Not because it’s better nowadays

But knowing that you’re in a better place

Can help me and the ones you left behind move on


I’m happy that you’re gone

But I hate that without you life goes on
