A game of chess twixt black and white
Thrust and repost left and right.
A pawn is sacrificed to the knight.
The bishop moves two to the right
Backed up by the queen a frightful sight.
The game you play seems much the same
But a stale mate is not the ultimate aim
You know that time is running out
So make your move don’t hang about
The game for us has lasted for years
With silence laughter and even tears
Yet you insist on being right
sacrificing our relationship to the night.
You go your way I’ll go mine
I wish for you that things will be fine
I have my doubts though hope I’m wrong
You perform too much with dance and song
When you have gone there will be a space
That once was filled by your ………….face
You finish it you always do good or bad
It’s all about you.
