I just got the news of you leaving 
this world.  

I regret not telling you that I love you
I regret not telling you about all the things that I love about you
I regret not telling you about how fun those times I spent with you were
I regret not telling you all the things we did together that I treasure
I regret minding too much about how my voice would have trembled if I had told you all these feelings.

I love you.
I miss you.

and I’ll never forget you.

what a wonderful thing

it’s 3 am in the morning
and I just need you by my side
come back another day

come back home.
just come back home.

it’s raining. it’s pouring.
I’m tired of crying in the morning
cause you’re not here beside me.

then on your skin
how does it feel
to be like icarus
who has flown
too close to the sun

to fall

and she speaks
