Just Passed by to Say Hello

When I saw your face for the first time
I passed by to say hello.
1 time, 2 times, 3 times and not a word left my mouth.

In High School on a bright Tuesday morning,
I passed by to wave, hi.
You waved back. I could live that moment 100 times.

After a while apart, and years gone by
I passed by to ask how you were.
You didn’t answer. Instead you lay there, staring at
The one who’d love you more than you loved her.

“The vital organs go first”
The lungs.
“The second oxygen’s no longer pumping through them,”
The lungs.
“They become useless”
The body.

I would be in your position today
If you kept your gaze and your touch
I should’ve never passed by.

Walking these halls and feeling your presence
I jump back at the place trying to fight me,
I should’ve never waved.
Your organs are useless.
Heart cold.
I had just passed by to say Goodbye.
