I knew this day would come when you'd be checking out
-out of hotel flesh and blood, once the happy hours ran out
so there could be no doubt, we saw the passing of a swan
it flew across that reflecting pool -when we looked back at you,
you were gone

you already said 'so long' and moved down to the sunshine state
a premature retirement, a folding of the hand of fate
by then it was too late you had solidified your plan
with a marriage of convenience, though not really to a man

it was not to a man that you were wedded on that day
it was to his unspoken vow to always look the other way

I knew this day would come when I would get the call
that the final domino was just about to fall
and when it hit the ground it barely made a sound
just a blink and a groan in a hospital gown

I couldn't hold you up so I had to let you down
but now that it's all over I find myself wishing you were still around
if you were still around I'd still be your long lost son
wishing and praying for an ending other than this one
I knew this day would come
