Amen

I wish

I knew

the loss

of a

broken heart

like you

did.

I wish

I prayed

for you

like the

rest of

them did.

I wish

I held

on harder

until my

knuckles turned

white like

everyone else

did.

I wish

we had

gotten to

say our

final goodbyes

like we

planned I

would.

But nothing

ever goes

right for

me because

I never

get to

say Amen.
