Kindered Spirits

Take her pain into me <br>For a life was ended so abruptly <br>Something in you died that night <br>A boy who finally stopped the fight <br>Everyone wonders about the why <br>How a young man would want to die <br>Nobody cares about the fee <br>If I died, would anyone remember me? <br>What the price for his mortal soul? <br>If I paid it for him, where would he go? <br>If I joined him, could I replace his spirit? <br>When I call his name out does he hear it? <br>If I told him everyone taught a lesson <br>Would he still pull the trigger, unable to move on? <br>If I ever asked, could you tell me why <br>Little things now make me cry? <br>If I sacrifice my soul for him <br>Is that vanity or love within? <br>When I mourn for all his chances missed <br>My life has been by his death kissed <br>

Take her pain into me

For a life was ended so abruptly

Something in you died that night

A boy who finally stopped the fight

Everyone wonders about the why

How a young man would want to die

Nobody cares about the fee

If I died, would anyone remember me?

What the price for his mortal soul?

If I paid it for him, where would he go?

If I joined him, could I replace his spirit?

When I call his name out does he hear it?

If I told him everyone taught a lesson

Would he still pull the trigger, unable to move on?

If I ever asked, could you tell me why

Little things now make me cry?

If I sacrifice my soul for him

Is that vanity or love within?

When I mourn for all his chances missed

My life has been by his death kissed

Synopsis
One of many poems I used to try to deal with the suicide of a friend. It happened years ago but it's still with me.
