Did you not see

Me as I lay there

Before you my

Life’s essence

Ebbing away

Did you not hear

Me as those things

I whispered to you

Begging for you

To say those things

That would save me

Did you not feel

My hand as I tightly

Gripped yours

Trying with all my

Might

To hang on to what

Remained of life

Of me

Did you not care
