Cant Go Back - Poem by Lance Carthen

I cant go back
Im already dead
Never got to tell her I loved her
Has to settle for facial expressions instead
I cant go back
God's taken me
You would think that I would be happy
But I am so angry
I remember the last night
Had it planned out perfect, alright
Had a beautiful ring for her
Gonna slip it on her finger along with three words
But I cant go back
Im already dead
Someone shot me in the back of the head
I wish they would have asked first
I would have let them have it
Nothing is worth this loss
Feeling constricted and entrapment
How can such a happy day end like this?
What cruel reality causes such sickness?
I dont guess it really matters..because
I cant go back
Im already dead
Laying on a cloud in heaven
Wondering what could have been
Seems like good intentions get you killed
Although its supposed to be eternal happiness
Its sadness that I am filled
I wish I could go back
Give this all away
Spend my life in hell
Just for her to hear me say...
I love you..
Yes, I love you..
I dont wanna live without you..
I want to be by your side, us together
Make this love last forevcr
However..
I cant go back
Im already dead
Its too late to help me
Help someone else instead.

I love you baby
