I saw your obituary in today's paper

I thought back 10 years ago to the day our relationship ended

how you packed your bags that day and left to find

whatever it was

that you couldn't find with me

and now you're dead

what a sad day today would have been for me

if you had stayed

instead

I don't feel so bad

I guess I have you to thank for that.

Belated Thank You
