Unspoken Prayer

I wasn’t there
To say goodbye
To hold your hand
Before you die

I wasn’t there
When you needed me
To be the friend
I needed to be

But now you’re gone
And it’s too late now to
Hug and say
That I love you

We had good times
And I can’t believe this is real
You’re really gone
And regret is what I feel

I keep asking myself questions
That keeps echoing in my head
Why wasn’t I there?
Because now you are dead

I will miss you so much
And I really did care
But now you’re not suffering
Unspoken Prayer
