I’m so sorry for ignoring you
As I hurried past the bridge
Where you lay huddled
With a blanket of paper
And a firefly for family
I didn’t care to look or stop.
Lost in my own concerns and fears
Which seem so ridiculous now
But they made me blind to your sorrow
I thought you were just another
Drunken mad failure
Harshly I judged and cast you aside
As my eyes were fixed on my own future
I couldn’t sacrifice my time for you,
I just had too get back home
In time for the football you see,
That I watched while sprawled upon my leather sofa.
I’m sorry for not being human.
If only I had stopped to help
Maybe then you wouldn’t have cuddled
Up to the beams of the speeding van
Just to escape the cold.
