I wish I had another day with you,
not to give you a reason to stay
but to ask why you left.
What drove you over the edge?
What pushed you to take that extra step?
How long had you been planning it?
I wish I could tell you that I love you,
not to make you feel guilty for leaving
but to have some sort of goodbye.
Why didn't you tell me?
Why wasn't there any other way?
Are you okay now?
I wish I had been there when it happened,
not to stop you from doing it
but to make you stop yourself.
Was it because of me?
Was it worth it?
Do you regret anything?
I wish I could have saved you,
not to disrespect your choice
but to show you that it wasn't the only one left.
