I loved them

I need to remember
Forget the compartments that I have everything
Tucked so neatly away in
And embrace the past as clearly as my future

I've spent enough time sitting with shrinks
To understand what happened
But the only thing I was left
Blinding grasping
Was why God chose me

There was a time when I would have traded my eternity
For God to chose the people I loved so deeply
But God chose me
So I watched them drown for long enough
To feel completely numb

But I must remember
That I can't save
Only God can

God, never let me forget them again
May their names stay in my prayers
And the voices stay in my head
May You grant them the same mercy
That You gave me
When I was and still am
So undeserving
