Can You Imagine

Can You Imagine
by Roxanne Barefoot

Can you Imagine how it feels
To lay alone at the end of the day
To stay awake just for the chance
That he will call just to say hey

Can you Imagine how it feels
To cringe at the sound of every gun
And to think that he may never
Get the chance to have a son

Can you Imagine what its like
To live alone and always know
The one you love is gone
And again his face may never show

Can you Imagine what I do
To pass the time when he is gone
I miss him so bad that all
I can do is sing our song

Can you Imagine what I say
When someone asks if Im ok
They want me to smile and nod
Because to them its just another day

Can you Imagine what I think
When I wait for weeks without a call
I lay awake and pray to God
That its not because he’s taken a fall

Can you Imagine what I see
Whenever the news is on at night
The nightmares they always come
And I cry alone in the painful light

Can you Imagine how it is
To live without the one thats holds heart
No you can’t and I pray
For you, that you never have to start.
