I didn’t know you till you passed away

And no more do I than I did before

You chose to leave, you chose death

when you were left with no other choice.

You lived only as much as I’m alive today

With a fervor now lost to the weakened winds

Yet I know now there are one too many

Who wish, desperately, in wrecking futility,

To turn this damn time around

And battle past that wretched moment

That sucked your life away.
