Tell me friend, did you lose all hope?
Is that why your bloody hand reached for the rope?
Was there anything we could’ve done
Or had the demons in your head already won?
On that night, when you got home
Had the certainty sunk down to your bone?
There wasn’t enough love for us to give
So you’d still have a will to live
When she found you, your mother cried
Your little brother on the inside, he died
Perhaps if I’d done more
Hadn’t be such a bore
My dearest friend, we miss you
I’m sorry no one said it before you left but we love you too
