I’m upset…here’s what it looks like

Why didn’t you fight?
for a chance to live
even one more day
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
you were always so strong
we even called you the rock
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
against all the odds
in the face of death
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
I needed to see you could
I needed to be proud of you
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
even to get out of bed
to do something brave
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
we all have to die one day
but better to do it with strength
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
for your family to see
for your own pride and dignity
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
instead crawled off to die
weak you wilted like a flower in sun
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
so many things you could have done
all left undone, not one you did
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
we begged and pleaded
you chose the siren’s song
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
Was it the tumor confusing you?
Were you lost early on?
Why didn’t you fight?

Why didn’t you fight?
I watched you die laying down
I won’t dare lay down and die
I swear to myself I’ll die fighting.
