I wished I could have been there

When you fell.

I could have pulled you out

Of the place

You fought so hard

To get out of. 

When you fell again, 

You shut me out.

And now I’m sitting

At your funeral

Wondering what

I should have done.

This is a brief insight into the mind of a grieving person. Although I too have grieved, I have never experienced something of this magnitude. I sincerely hope that you don't relate to this pain, but if you do, please know that I am rooting for you.
