Sober And Clean
I was in the room when you passed away
the image of you dying haunts me each & everyday
I ended up relapsing after being sober & clean
when I had a drink, I was bitter and mean.
The fact that you died in front of me that day
I broke down crying because you passed away
I got back sober and clean after a while
almost three years later & I'm walking that mile.
