I'm sorry

If you ever see this,
If you ever read this,
Please just believe this.
I would have had your back,
no bully could attack.
You'd still be here
perfectly fine.
Nobody could hurt you,
or they'd be hurt by mine.
Greatest intention that is.

I guess it is what it is,
and that's a terrible fact.
because I would have been there.
I'd have your back.

I wish you were here.
I've never seen you before.
But I feel like my face hit the door.
Why didn't I see your video on time?
Why couldn't I message you before it was too late?
Why wasn't I there?
All those questions are just up in the air.

I hope you're in a better place.
But it's a real shame I never saw your face.
I wish I could have.
You'd still be here today,
if I would have.

I'm sorry I didn't know you.
You wouldn't have sat alone at school if I did.
You wouldn't have gotten touched by anyone if i did.
You'd have my shoulder to cry on if i did.
But now there's just guilt that i didn't,
it's terrible and so true.

I hope you are perfect wherever you are.
You're beautiful no matter what anyone says you are.
