I’ll never forget my words that day

How could I ever forget my words that day?
“Just go home and stop being a pain” I said in May
I couldn’t handle the emotion of missing her when I left
Little did I realise that from that day I’d end up totally bereft
They all described her as a mirror of my soul
Her face when she saw me was like one who scored a goal
The memories live on torturing my very being
Even when my eyes close I don’t stop seeing
Waking to hear, the house is on fire!
Running to get there before circumstances became dire
The looks of stunned silence on every fleeting face
My heart beating, breaking at the thought they weren’t in a safe place
Entering the house meeting a wall of flames in the stairway
Unable to pass, why does it have to be this way?
Would it have been different if I’d have let her stay?
Not though of myself before returning south the next day
Uni seemed to pass without a care following that trauma
Nightmares thereafter scared my mate Shauna
Three little souls I lost in that house
The one that remained became but a mouse
I’ll never forget my words that day
I know I could have made a difference that day in May!

I’ll never forget my words that day
