i'm sorry i couldn't hold you
you were a light that helped us grow
i'm sorry you felt alone
what a terrible way to go

i let you down when i gave up
and a light inside you died
i wasn't good company
but still you stuck by my side

cold winter and not a word
then a neighbour let us know
you had slipped off sad and lonely
what a terrible way to go

five weeks asleep in peace
all worries and sadness gone
i hope there's laughter now
i'm sorry you died alone
