Like Nothing Changed

We spoke of life,

I laughed with you,

You smiled up to me,

And like nothing changed, I left

 

We shared the hook,

Your chest rose and fell,

I smiled down to you,

And like nothing changed, I left

 

We held hands,

I heard you breathing,

You asked for him,

And like nothing changed, I left

 

I sat beside you,

I held it all in,

You couldn’t find comfort,

And like nothing changed, I left

 

They delivered the news,

I screamed for the first time,

You lay waiting for us,

And like nothing changed, I left

 

I held your hand,

You were sleeping,

You were only sleeping,

And like nothing changed, I left

 

I stood above you,

You were at peace,

I wouldn’t let you stop sleeping,

And like nothing changed, I left

 

She held my hand,

You took his as I spoke,

You were no longer sleeping,

And like nothing changed, I left
