You were the only one that was always on my side. When I was with you though I wasted all of our time. I let all your words leak out the sides of my mind. I can't think of a single thing you said, your voice is lost to time. I'm sure there was a lilting tone, but the memories are gone, like a whisper in a thronging crowd or the last song of a swan. If I could do it all again, I'd do so differently. I'd ask, I'd listen, I'd write it all down, I'd handle your voice so carefully.
