Day 3 – I Never Said Anything

I never said anything, but
she told me in February that if
she had a heart attack
to blame it on you

I never said anything, but
when she had a stroke in April, I knew
you finally wore her down

I couldn’t say anything when
you were the first to speak at her funeral,
praising her strong work ethic,
the one you’d taken advantage of
until she could no longer serve

I could not speak – 
what could I say,
who would I tell?
I could not move.
I could not look into your eyes again.

In my dreams I see her with the angels
and I see Karma standing watch over you
but it’s me who burns every day
with those things I couldn’t say.
