          I listen to you say goodbye.
          I watch you cry.
          Do I believe
          you truly grieve?

          Does someone else now feed your soul?
          Do you control
          a weakened spine
          like you did mine?

          The final question that I see
          that's haunting me,
          consider hate
          or celebrate?
