before you became sick
I never saw you
you worked, I knew
it was for us
but that didn't stop me from feeling lonely
I played your video games
in the hope that you would join me
Sometimes you did
and it was then I was happiest
But I never saw you still
and now you cannot talk,
you can't even read these words
and I cannot ask you what I wanted to
I can't say things in fear, I'll never see you
You're dying, I can't let myself hurt you.
Why didn't you ever come home?
