One by one
Copyright George Papavgeris, December 2005

One by one they're leaving me,
The heroes of my youth
The healers of my troubles
And the seekers after truth.
One by one they up and go
And heading for the door
Knowing that in doing so
They are making room for more.

And it's not so much the loneliness
As they rise up to the sky
But the feeling that it's down to me
To keep the banner high.
For I know this is a circle
And the circle never ends
I just hope that I have played my part
And been worthy of my friends

One by one they're leaving me,
The sharers of my food
The ones I tried to follow
And the ones I never could.
One by one they're leaving me,
Some young and some no more
And I just glimpse the light outside
As they go through the door.

And it's not so much the company
For I remember that
But the sight of the empty chairs
Where each one of them sat.
For I know this is a circle
And the circle never ends
I just hope that I have played my part
And been worthy of my friends

One by one they're leaving me,
The playmates of my days
The keepers of my marbles
And the finders of my ways.
One by one they go to sup
In some celestial bar
And my bitter gets more bitter still
As I seek them in the stars.

And it's not so much the knowledge
There's a limit to my stay
But I hope that I can find them
And I hope they'll let me play.
For I know this is a circle
And the circle never ends
I just hope that I have played my part
And been worthy of my friends
