Before You Said Enough
It hurts me that you’re dead.
I know you don’t care—
I know you think you might be better off,
But I just want you to know
If you can still hear my heart
Thwart itself, somewhere
Wherever in the universe you are, now
That it hurts to know you’re dead
It hurts to be alone, here
I wish you hadn’t done it but
I understand, which is why I think
It hurts me so much that you’re gone
I’ve felt that close, and the temptation
Never won. The truth hurts so much
I think anyone who understands it would be
Crushed, but I wish I had a chance
To tell you how much we are alike
Before you left me here, alone
To think too much, the way you had to
Before you said enough.
I love you, and so does life
We are tougher than any stumble
No surgeon can take away our pride
Woman to woman, man to man
I am so sorry for what they did to you
Nobody deserves that, you aren’t alone —
We can still fight.
I will keep fighting for what’s right
Because your memory cuts me like a knife.
