The Day After

Please dont be afraid
You just can't remember me
I was a friend and still am
The day after your accident
You dont even recognize my name
Consciously, you've forgotten me
I have to bring you back home
Memories always leave an imprint
Time to leave you alone
Walk around, touch the picture frame
Read a letter, lay down on the bed
Still lost--you're not to blame
Please dont be afraid
You just can't remember me
My love for you still grows
Your love for me still shows
One last thing this might work
Look at my wrist, feel my hurt
You say my name, you could see
Don't have shame, release life in me.
