If You’d Stayed

If you’d stayed three days longer

Maybe things wouldn’t be this way.

If you’d stayed four days kinder

Maybe I wouldn’t feel betrayed.

If you’d stayed five days stronger

Maybe I wouldn’t be so fragile.

If you’d stayed six days further

Maybe life wouldn’t be such a battle.

If you’d stayed seven days closer

Maybe I wouldn’t want to leave.

If you’d stayed eight days attentive

Maybe you’d hear me now.
