There was something about that October day

Something that we may never know

But it was too much for you

And you felt you couldn't bear to live another day

-

There was no tourniquet that could save you

No amount of prayer that could keep you here

You'd gone past the point of being saved

-

While we don't know if you've forgotten us

We know we'll never forget you

Some long to but know they never will

There are just some memories that can't be killed

-

There was no tourniquet that could save you

No amount of prayer that could keep you here

You'd officially gone beyond being able to be saved

-

Why you wanted to die

Those of us left behind can only guess why

But your soul cried as you begged to not be denied

On the cold fall night that you died
