One foot in front of another

it's just another day

you say have you seen her

do you remember how happy she was?

She was so beautiful

What happened?

You smell that acid smell in the bathroom after her

You see that emaciated frame long after she's gone

You say her hair was so long and thick

now it clogs the drain

what happened?

You say you are so blessed to be healthy

One foot in front of another

it's just another day

I say why didn't you stop her and tell her

tell her that she was beautiful

why don't you run after her

say your worried

ask if you can help

Instead you stand their and watch her leave

someday you are going to read the obiturary and realize YOU could have spoke up

but instead you watched that hair clog the drain

you let her isolate herself

you forgot to say I love you

You forgot about her

What if.. the ulitimate question

what if you stopped her?

Like someone stopped me

what if you didn't forget about her?

She would still be here

What if you didn't figure someone else would say something?

She would still be here

What if you never had to read that obituary?

What if you never had to go to the funeral?

What if you never had to play back all the times she walked away and you let her?
