You’re gone – too soon
For reasons your own
And I’m left wondering
If I would have known?
Would you have confided and this time I’d know?
This was for real, not just a show.
Would I have felt your pain?
Seen your breath start to fade?
Would I have caught you as you fell?
Could I have made you well?
What do you do when you start to miss them?
When their memory invades and turns your day grim?
How do stop thinking, “She’s done laughing,”
And focus on the fact that she’s done crying?
How do you not come off as vain?
When you want to reminisce to help stop your pain?
How do you explain the years in between?
When words weren’t spoken and life was unseen?
How do you find solace, in knowing she’s finally free?
When your heart aches, wishing she’d, “Stayed…for me.”
