I don’t normally fall to my knees

But before you, I did

By your bedside, I did

Too late, I did.

I don’t talk to Him anymore

But to you I will

I said my goodbyes and well wishes.

I asked you to look over those surrounding me.

I tried to be brave and selfless,

so I told you not to worry about me.

But to my knees, I fall again.
