The Life He Kept Living


His head pounds, louder than a drum
His heart weakens, little by little
He never thought it could happen this way, but it did

Wish for a different outcome
Wish for a better life
One with less sorrow, less pain, less guilt, more light

I could see the hurt
The never ending hurt
The pain unimaginable to anyone else, inexplicable to him

The pain of the life he kept living
The life he kept living for me
