I thought to give you a call today
but once again the weight of the world managed to get in the way.
Same M.O. as before;
me breaking my back trying to help others once more.
Only thing different is the time and date.
I never met a problem in life I couldn’t equate.
But now I’m tired of handling everyone’s issues but my own,
which is why I thought of you when I picked up the phone.
We hadn’t talked in quite awhile,
And I knew you of all people could make me smile.
By the time I got around to trying again,
A family member called saying your life had come to an end.
But how could this be? So much was still left unsaid.
As he continued to speak, our last moments played back in my head.
So glad I decided to come see you on your birthday,
Who would’ve ever thought you wouldn’t be with us present day?
A meaningless text, our last communication.
Now the topic of conversation is your impending cremation.
I thought to give you a call today but today was much too late.
If I had it all to do again, I promise you, I wouldn’t hesitate.
