I reached out for your hand

You didn't seem to care;

You can only reach so far

When no one else is there.

Others also reached for you

Hoping to make you see;

That we're just as important as he will ever be.

We wish we could reach further

But we are only so strong;

We hoped your eyes would open

So that you'd see you're wrong.

It hurts to have to reach far

When you once were so near;

It's hard shouting out for you

With our voices you don't hear.

We wish you'd extend your hand

And sense the friendship there;

Knowing what our memories mean

Showing us you still care.

We realize we can’t live your life

Even though we feel your pains;

You can't handle both the worlds

So you close connected doors;

We’ll always have that link still

But your pain I can take no more;

For Every time he makes you cry

Another Part of the you we love will die.

We're done now reaching for the past

You are on your own;

We hope he is all worth it,

Without him you're alone.
