I'll miss my roommate

How can I tell my friend
what the doctor’s would not say
though their faces told the truth

I sat unable to say the word
unable to warn, unable to speak
useless was my name

she was not coming back
a one way flight
she wouldn’t make it home

I should have spoken
told him to prepare
warned him of their eyes

I didn’t know the facts
nobody said a word
but a doctor’s eyes do not lie

I said goodbye in the i.c.u.
prayed for a swift journey
gave my coins to the ferry

but nothing was said to him
for that I’m ashamed
forgive me eddy

And come home soon
