    SAFETY COMMITTEE

    I Chose To Look The Other Way

    I could have saved a life that day,

    But I chose to look the other way.

    It wasn’t that I didn’t care;

    I had the time, and I was there.

    But I didn’t want to seem a fool,

    Or argue over a safety rule.

    I knew he’d done the job before;

    If I spoke up he might get sore.

    The chances didn’t seem that bad;

    I’d done the same, he knew I had.

    So I shook my head and walked by;

    He knew the risks as well as I.

    He took the chance, I closed an eye;

    And with that act, I let him die.

    I could have saved a life that day,

    But I chose to look the other way.

    Now every time I see his wife,

    I know I should have saved his life.

    That guilt is something I must bear;

    But isn’t’ something you need to share.

    If you see a risk that others take

    That puts their health or life at stake,

    The question asked or thing you say;

    Could help them live another day.

    If you see a risk and walk away,

    Then hope you never have to say,

    “I could have saved a life that day,

    But I chose to look the other way.”
