How Much Time?

How Much Time?

Do you feel better now

After what you did?

How could you ?

You are gone and you took their innocence

How can we understand?

The ones you left behind?

They say it gets easier

Just give it some more time

 

Where did you come from?

What made you so mad?

How did you even get that gun

To execute your plan?

Why did you go crazy?

How did no one know?

What brought you to that place and time

To let those bullets go?

 

And now it’s over

No chance to say goodbye

We miss our loved ones

For them each day we cry

It’s difficult to let go

Our grief will never cease

They ‘re in no pain now

We pray they rest in peace

 

Do you feel better now

After what you did?

How could you?

You are gone

And you took their innocence

How can we understand

The ones you left behind?

They say it gets easier

Just give it some more time

 

How much more time?

Never got to say goodbye

I need more time

I want to say I love you

How much more time?

You were ripped away too quickly

I need more time

Time I wish you still had

How much more time?

We were supposed to have more time

 

Do you feel better now

After what you did?

How could you?

You are gone

And you took their innocence

One thought on “How Much Time?

  1. tishmacwebber says:

    How Much Time was written in response to a news story about another shooting in the States. It can be about any senseless act of violence, written from the point of view of someone in mourning over their loss. Again, a melancholy sound in my head when writing this one. So many questions left unanswered.
