Can you hear
Can you see
Can you sense that I am near
I let go when you left
I caught water with both hands
I saw a flower in the sun
Tore up its root and it drifted away

When you left, I let go
Watched you shed your life
Watched you drift away

    My InterpretationThis gives me the impression of "drifting" after losing a partner. I can imagine that after such an event you may just "drift" through life for a period of time.

    "Watched you shed your life" could suggest that perhaps a suicide occurred? Or perhaps a long-term / terminal illness afflicted them before death.
