Your photo is framed on my wall

It being there makes no sense at all

We were never lovers, family or friends

Still, each day I try to make amends

When I was young I finished first place

Not one reaction of pride displayed on your face

Instead you responded with only your demise

Told by the look in your lifeless eyes

No matter how great or good my actions were

They were never enough for you to concur

Years later I realized my focus was all wrong

My attention had been on myself all along

Since that day I breathed only for you

Dedication I was certain you knew

But today I lay resting on my final day

And still you have nothing to say…
