He sits there head in his hands; still and unmoving.
Pain pushing him down like a huge weight.
The tears fall down silently like summer rain as he replays the scene.
Many questions are asked but the what ifs never matter.
How can life be so cruel? He wonders.
It never made you stronger, just more susceptible to fear.
He cries up to the stars wishing for just one more chance,
Even though he knows the heavens have made their call.
His soul bows as he whispers a delayed goodbye,
Maybe I’ll join you my friend,
Only in a better life… in a better life.
