I Wasn'T There For You

Who would have thought,
this is how we would be,
that this is what has become
of what was once you and me.

I pour out my heart,
you don't say a word,
but every soft whisper
in your heart I know is heard.

When I do hear your voice,
calling out to me
I turn to run to you,
then know it cannot be.

I reach out to touch you...
to hold you once again,
but you don't reach back
leaving an emptiness within.

My hand sweeps across the ground
where you now peacefully sleep.
Longing for you to reach up
and grasp my hand as I weep.

I gently kiss your name,
engraved upon the stone.
I'm left to cry at your grave-side
yes, I'm left to cry all alone.

I long to know the many answers...
as to why you left without goodbye.
And what caused you to hurt so badly,
that you felt that you must die.

I will face all of life's battles,
how I wish you were by my side.
Cause if we had fought battles together,
Maybe you wouldn’t have died.

I'm sorry I wasn't there for you...
because now you are forever gone.
Soon we will be together again,
but for now I must must go on.

Tears dropp from my grieving eyes,
as I lay the red roses on your stone.
I am left to cry at your grave-side,
Yes, I'm left to cry all alone.
