If You Would Have Known

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

If You Would Have Known

If you could have seen the devastation,

shattered hearts you’d leave behind, 

would you still have left this world that day?

Would it have made you change your mind?

If you’d known we’d cry so violently

and struggle just to breathe,

would that have made a difference?

Would you still have chosen to leave?

You left without a warning;

you left without saying “goodbye.”

You left us with only questions.

The most important one is “why?”

Why did you believe

you had to face this world alone?

Why did you suffer silently?

We would have helped if we had known. 

How long had you been hurting

before deciding you were done?

I’m glad your pain has ended,

but our pain has just begun. 

So when you see us start to fall apart,

when our pain is too much to bear,

please take our hands and guide us;

remind us that you’re there.

 

Help us hold on to the part of you;

you left us with your song.

Keep playing it in heaven.

We’ll write the words and sing along.
