    I can smell it on her breath;
    I can smell it, death.

    Southern Belle has all the luck;
    Lost all but one, all but one.
    She's exhausted.
    How can she do it, find the will to live?
    I would have already done in.

    Dear Southern Belle,
    Losing her sanity one day at a time;
    I can feel four winds blowing, she's done.

    Done more than the flowers, the tomatoes, the coffee;
    Done more than the purple box under her feet.

    In the sky she shines like the rest of them,
    But it really doesn't matter, she's done.

    (this will have it make more sense - my moms best friend passed away on august 31st, her mom lost her husband 2 years ago, so now she's all alone. she asked me to stay with her until she's more comfortable being alone and is losing her sanity the further the days go by. her daughter was buried in a purple casket, and the flowers from the funeral were sitting on the table rotting away. tomatoes were dead from frost that hit outside 2 days ago, and the coffee tasted disgusting. this is all that came to my head.)
