Grief

I know it’s hard to breathe sometimes,

I know it’s hard to pray,

I know the world stopped making sense

Because I couldn’t stay.

Your eyes are drained of tears to cry;

To wake and face each day

Demands the dregs of borrowed strength

Because I couldn’t stay.

In an unimaginable future,

There may be comfort I am free,

But here, in numb dark, only:

I couldn’t stay with thee.

Don’t let the darkness keep you,

Though stumble blind and crash you may:

Our hearts could never be unbound just

Because I couldn’t stay.
