I would think about you and my tears would fall
You were the sun that shines, an encouraging thought
wish I could have been there with you
while the Cancer you fought
You prayed over each one, but me, I was not there
I was behind those walls, with a life I could not bear
I could not escape, a drug habit I could not break
Ashamed, deranged and full of fear
All I could think about was me being here
Overwhelmed by depression, in great despair
Feeling sorry for myself, thinking, "this is not fair"
"How did I get here"?, "What did I do"?
Your fighting for your life and I am stuck here without you
Sometime has gone by, released from those walls
Now your dead and gone, I live with only memories
and tears that fall
So, learn from your past, the experience you go through
You never know when a loved one will pass
and you can't say "I Love You"!
