backup generator

if you come back
and the light’s still on
know that i won’t be there

i’ll have gone to find
my true place in the world
far away from here

used to look forward
to my old friends to come
and keep me company

the tales i’d hear
from their days forgone
all till the end of days

but i know you won’t come
haven’t seen you in years
the house will remain empty

with the light’s still on
