You're too far away to see it,
Too far away to see the hurt,
The destruction that you have left.
I can see it in her eyes,
Broken, shimmering with tears
As she explains to us what happened.
I can see in her pain your worth.
She said you got up and left.
She said you didn't say goodbye.
All of us are stunned, for you
Were the strongest of us.
The most charismatic, one pillar
That kept this little family together.
I can see the others around me
As their buckets fill with emotion.
Of all of us, I expected you to leave last.
I expected for you to be there
Until my last day, when I blossomed
And moved on to a new life.
I pictured you would be there
To wish me the best and say goodbye.
Instead, we are the ones saying goodbye,
Mourning in your permanent absence.
A part of me understands, is forgiving,
But I cannot forgive that you
Did not offer a farewell, as we are now.
I know we will remain strong,
But a part of us is broken.
Even as she asks for us to speak,
None of us can form words to express
How angry we are.
Our body grew around your presence,
Only to have you suddenly ripped out.
We can feel the blood flowing.
It is no longer a flesh wound.
