I have this knot you cannot see
This pain that’s deep inside of me
This heavy feeling in my chest
This open wound amongst my breast.
My knot never goes away
I fear forever it will stay.
It first came to me when you said “goodbye”
I felt this pain from my first sigh…
Apart from you
And love that felt true.
Now this knot won’t leave me be…
A reminder of you and again I weep.
