I Wish I Could Have Said Goodbye

A night to remember.
It’s been four years since I watched them lower you into the ground
It's been many years since I said I love you
Too many cold nights have gone by that I sit here beside you alone
I can whisper and talk to your grave all night long and never stop talking.

I know you cannot hear me, I know you cannot say you’re sorry for that night
I know that you never meant to yell or storm out
I know that I shouldn’t have let you go
There are so many things that we should have done together.

Like watch our son grow up
Or plan those trips
I wish I could hear your voice
I wish I could have warned you not to cross the street.

I know you never wanted to leave me but it was too late
You never heard my cry, you never got to say goodbye
It was too late, it was too quick
That day four years ago was the worst
I just wanted you to know that I will never forget you.
