Poem/Lyric by: Ben Dunk. 1967

 

He or She?

 

GONE

 

He has gone,

He has gone,

He has gone.

I donít know why it happened that way

I only know the dooms here to stay

Until my man returns to his place

I freeze in my chair with tears on my face

 

He has gone,

He has gone,

He has gone.

My mind sends out a beacon all round

Longing to know whether heís found

Gestures of love as I only know

I never thought fate would deal me this blow

 

He has gone,

He has gone,

He has gone.

My heart grows cold its light has gone out

No longer can I sing and shout

Just quivering lips show all the loss

Of one who meant more than Iíve come across

 

He has gone,

He has gone,

He has gone

Please God send him home or I shall die

Why was it I told him such a lie

I regret that I had my own way

There are so many things I meant to say.
