Those whispers at the funeral were funny
They all were sad & shattered, now
And their noses were runny.
Now they care, now they love, now they want to know his story
Now they wonder if they could help to stop,
To stop him from attempting suicide
Now they have the time. And a heart.
Oh it was so funny!
Oh, those whispers at the funeral were so funny!
Among those whispers I hear a familiar voice
Oh so now you’re sad that he died?
What about me when I told you I want to die?
Those sad eyes of yours now, then ignored my tears
Ignored how much I was scared
I tried talking, but your ears never heard enough
You never wanted to believe that I was having it tough
“You’re strong, I know this will pass by”
Those words were all I got
And I thought you were there by my side
It’s hard to ask for help but I still did
Reaching out to you was my last bid
But all you saw how I was laughing, with a fake smile
Oh it’s so funny that I tried
So now I hide all the storms in my heart
And the demons in my head
Act like I am never alone
I embellish the eyes that’s been dead
I keep singing every song
And make that dead soul dance all along
But what hurts most is,
Everyday I fight, all alone
And got no support
So please don’t blame me when I say,
Wish I had a family
Wish I had a home.
But oh, wait!
Before I make this again about me
Did I tell you
Of all those funny whispers
What was killing me, was yours
~ for the friend who’s hurt and doesn’t wanna speak no more. To the aching soul, that walks alone!
