When you said life would turn around

Just after a huge implosion

When I said nothing to you

But thought you may be overstating.

When you told me not to worry

You’d take care of it for me

When I tried to do it myself, and failed

You turned up to finish.

When you said you’d turn your life around

Become something you’d be proud of

Then laughed about the past

When it pointed in the wrong direction.


I slid my hand down your coffin today

Whispered “I believe you.”
