Heartless Hand

Last one standing
Family are all gone
Lost wife and two sons
Not sure how he carries on

Wife taken by cancer
Lungs consumbed by tumor
More than twenty years ago
Still can’t escape it though

Then went the youngest son
2004 saw the end of him
Murdered upon his stage
So much hatred flowed that day

Last was the eldest one
Fifty four is too young
Died in the city of sin
Heart diseases did claim him

No man should survive his kids
Have to bury everything he loves
Be dealt such a heartless hand
Being left to carry on without them
