Take the Time

Take the Time 
The most important day in 
 My life you fail to come through 
 You decided to let me fall. 
 The time I needed you most 
 You hit ignore and didn’t 
 Answer my call 
.I sat there in that corner, 
 And cried tears of pain. 
As all the trouble and hurt 
 I held on to started to 
 Drive me insane. 
 And I waited as long as I could 
 To hear someone say 
 "Hold on, wait I'll be there" 
 But no one showed and 
 It hurt more to see no one care. 
 You were so tied up 
 In your selfish acts 
Or too tired you proclaimed 
 To leave your bed 
 And I was all alone
 As thoughts raced 
 Through my head 
 And before me laid 
 Many options: pills, rope, 
 A gun, a knife. 
 Trying to find the quickest 
 Way to end this pain 
 I called life 
 So now it’s over 
 It’s done, and 
Everyone asks why? 
 But she seemed so happy 
 I never seen her cry 
But I did, you just 
 Never took the time to see 
 Time to realize the obvious 
 You over looked in me 
 So if anyone out there 
 Can hear me 
Will you truly listen 
Will you remember 
 Take the time so this 
 Doesn't happen again? 
 Will you remember to at 
 Least call or text or stop 
 By or just drop in 
 Take a moment to check 
 On your family and friends 
 Don’t just say you're thankful 
 For people in your life 
 But can’t recall the 
 Last time you came in contact 
 A life is something easily taken 
 That you can’t give back.
