Did you read the girl's memoir?
it was on the last pages
she wrote a poem
and she dated it
Aug 18th,
a week after she was dead.
The poem was so short
it had only two lines,
'Why weren't you there? '
and 'Baby, don't cry'
on the next page was a picture,
it said, 'Broken dream'
it showed a little kitten
drowning in the stream
I guess she was on her last pages
when she finally died
nobody wrote, 'The end'
nobody was alive
but 'the end' comes so soon
when you're on your last pages
she wrote a little note
as she was running out of ink
it said, 'I know we could've loved,
but what good are might've beens? '
I guess she was on her last pages
when she finally found the end.
On the last line
it showed a smile broken
'Don't worry, I won't cry'
it read her final words again.
Carved out of her gravestone
under the weeping cherry tree
there is a statue
of a stone girl who never weeps
she just smiles
with eyes so tender sweet.
I guess she made it to the river,
I guess she finally lived her dream,
on the last pages
after she was already dead.
