The last time I saw my mother,
It was snowing outside,
And she was quite impatient to leave.
"Who are all these people,
And why am I here?"
I guess it all depends on who you can believe.
The last time I saw my father,
It was raining outside.
The sky was all so uniformly gray.
The clouds were crying children,
And the rain was their tears.
The night was soon to overtake the day.
The last time I saw my brothers,
It was sunny and bright.
We got up early just to greet the dawn.
We laughed about old times,
And then we let out a cheer.
I wish that way of life could have gone
On and on and on and on and on.
The last time I saw my family,
I was on my way to missing my train.
