I thought I saw you walking by

But your name I could not cry

Stuck underneath my tongue

Now I am hung

By the guilt I once felt

And feel again.

For the second time

I watched you exit my life.

Had I just opened my mouth

And called out

We could have made amends.

And if that wasn’t you,

The friend I once knew,

Then what would I do?

If they had walked away

Never responding to your name

Would I suffer a greater shame?

These answers I will never find

Because I was so hurt

I got left behind.
