Could have... Would have... Should have...

You could've lived such a full live
Gone on adventures
Seen the world
and tried out new things

I should have known
Sensed what was going on
There were all these signs
But I didn't listen

You would have gratuated
Studied amazing things
Might have gone to a concert of Linkin Park
and grown into a wonderful person

I would have gone to you before
been there in time
to say goodbye
and play one last game of chess

You should have survived
had romantic relationships
made your mark on this world
and shared your brilliance with more people

I could have done something
made it memorable
let you know that you were loved
and made a difference

If I could have done something
I would have
Just like I should have

You should have lived
because your life would have been wonderful
it could have been great

Could have...
Would have ...
Should have ...


For Tom

In loving memory

Ten years ago today

Ten years ago today
your lifelight was taken away
After a long sickbed
and a summer that flew by

Ten years ago today
Only a day later I received a phone call
It left me devestated
crushed with grief
and filled with disbelief

Ten years ago today
I was crying on the phone
coping with death
coping with letting you go
confronted with your loss
that I lost it all

Ten years ago today
I saw the cruelty of the world
that took you away

I learned to say goodbye
Crying myself to sleep at night

Ten years ago today
and there's not a day that goes by
that your life won't be remembered
Because you might have had to go
but you will never be forgotten
and will forever be in my heart

For Tom

In loving memory
Rest in peace
