Why did you take your own life
And leave me, your friend and wife?
You left your family and kids
Do you have any idea what you did?
You did what you did and we don’t know why
But all we know, is that you made us cry
You should have talked so we knew
We needed to know what you were going through
May be you thought that we’d be strong
I’m sorry to say that you were wrong
We don’t know what to do or how we should be
You needed help. Can’t you see?
We know it was your life and your choice
You should have told us and used your voice
You should have told us how you felt
And maybe, just maybe, we could have helped
We wish we had time, just one more day
There’s so much we would like to say
You should have said, you should have tried
But instead you didn’t talk and you lied
We will never understand what went on in your head
All the things you could have done or said
And now we don’t know how to feel
As we don’t know what was true or real
Even though you did what you did
And kept your sadness and feelings well hid
You must know that we will always love you
If only we had listened, if only we knew
Maybe you thought you were protecting us
But you didn’t say. You didn’t trust
It seems that you just didn’t care
But we don’t know. We weren’t aware.
We never knew you were so desperate
Our feelings now feel so inadequate
We will in time forgive but not forget
But not today. We’re not ready yet.
