I Cannot Tell You That He's Dead

I cannot tell you that he’s dead
It’s too much for your heart
I can’t tell you the last words he said
Or how he did depart

I can’t tell you that he left in vain
Or that he had it coming
I can’t say that he left with pain
Or that his heart was drumming

I cannot tell you why he died
I cannot tell you where
I cannot tell you that I cried
Or if I even care

For you to have missed it instead of I
The reason I can’t see
I cannot tell you when he died
For he was always dead to me
