Should I tell them?
About how I have no job?
About my way to loose weight?
About when I don’t know who to love?
Do they already know?
Do I make it that obvious?
Do they even need to know?
But they’re my best friends…
But this is personal…
But I have no one else to tell…
So I’ll tell them
So when the time is right
So that will be…

Why him?
Why not one of us?
He was helping,
Not hurting
Doesn’t God understand?
That he didn’t deserve his final fate?
Crying won’t bring him back,
Complaining and contemplating won’t either
We were having so much fun,
Then somehow there we were,
With doctors telling us that we couldn’t even say good bye
But I say it can’t happen
I need to say
Good bye
