I Just Knew




I just knew that you wouldn’t be there when I got back
The door left ajar
Peering in
You were gone

I just knew that I couldn’t stay and hear your cry
But I should’ve
Yet, I left and now you’re gone
When would you be back?

I just knew that you didn’t want to wait to leave
But I made you stay anyway
With the door unlocked
The key in sight
But now, you’re not here

I just knew that I couldn’t watch you suffer
So I went without you
And now you’re gone
I can’t help but call it my fault

I just knew that you wouldn’t be okay alone
So I turned back
To save you from your tears
To tell you that you could go
But, when I turned the corner and saw the door,
I just knew that you were gone

But, I just didn’t know
That you’d never come back
To say bye
So I never got the chance to say
I’m sorry
