No goodbye

You were alone; we never came

To hold your hand, to ease your pain

It was your time – too early come

Taken from us – what have they done?


All alone, left to die

No one there to hear you cry

The pain burns deep, the anger raw

You were in distress; how could they ignore?


From strength to frailty in just a few days

Vulnerable, confused, all alone

No friendly face to calm your fears

Sorry, dad, if only we had known


Now you are gone, it’s hard to bear

Sorrow and pain because they just didn’t care

How cruel is life for you to suffer so!

But your journey is not yet over,

Until we have justice, dad, I bid you adieu
