Last night I killed my farther

And it was not out of rage

Was not the fact that to him

I was a mere boy by my age

Last night I killed my farther

And it was not for his wealth

Nor material gains or things

To obtain due to his demising

Health

Last night I killed my farther

To stop a fountain of tears

To cease a flow that had gone

On for many years

Last night I killed my farther

To bring about an end

To see the day start peacefully

And my mother not have to defend

Last night I killed my farther

And it was not out of rage

For time had taken its toll on

Me of this I cannot pretend

Last night I killed my farther

And I slept so peacefully

For such knowledge could do

Nothing than set me mind

And soul free

Last night I killed my farther

And I quietly laid down to rest

Knowing that in my heart of hearts

That I had always done the best

Last night I killed my farther

And to him it was no surprise

For he read my true intentions

By just looking in my eyes

Last night I killed my farther

By breaking his lonely heart

When I told him that from his

Company I was now ready to

Depart

Last night I killed my farther

As I slowly turned away

Knowing that no spoken word

Would ever make me stay

Last night I killed my farther

As I closed the door on his world

I heard him fall but did not turn

For my heart would form no words
