The pain was so unbearable
to even think it through
When he placed the gun against his head-
that is when she got the news
She prayed dear Lord, forgive him,
while her eyes swelled up with tears
the room was still, the lights so dim
all I could offer was my hand
I light a candle and I pray
don't let her heart die with her pain!
