Anyone interested in collaborating? Lyrics done just need some music n vocals

Hi,

Wrote this song and at the minute I'm not doing anything with it, I don't play any instruments and I can't really sing.

I'd like to see what it can sound like with music and vocals. In my head it's a slow ballad type song but people might have different ideas.

The song is about my brother in law who committed suicide in June. Please feel free to comment, good or bad. I won't get offended or upset.

'No chance'

A warm summer evening
a knock at the door and
The pain was clear in his eyes.
something had happened,
Lost and heart broken
He told me that you had just died.
A strange reaction
Uncharacteristic
The choice was that it was your time.
I didn't quite get it or even believe it
And still now it doesn't feel right.

CHORUS:
You made the decision
You weren't really thinking
Gave her no chance for goodbye.
Now she's all a mess And
the family's in pieces,
And we've all got tears in our eyes.

You left her a widow
A void now without you
She's lost her partner in crime.
How to move forward
How to get through this
Your next guess is as good as mine.
So many questions
Mainly unanswered
Hers heart shattered your for her lifetime.
Through all the heartache
The tears and the anger
Forever you'll be in our mind.

You made the decision
You weren't really thinking
Gave her no chance for goodbye.
Now she's all a mess And
the family's in pieces,
And we've all got tears in our eyes.

Church bells were ringing
The choir was signing
Hands were held overly tight.
Your daughter she stood up
An innocent young lady
And I just sat there and cried.
A miscalculation
Without Rhyme or reason
U did it without warning signs.
The worse thing about it
we'll always be asking
It happened and no1 knows why.

You made the decision
You weren't really thinking
Gave her no chance for goodbye.
Now she's all a mess And
the family's in pieces,
And we've all got tears in our eyes.

You made the decision
You weren't really thinking
Gave her no chance for goodbye.

I'm sorry for your loss. They're a nice set of lyrics and I wouldn't mind making a melody for you, but I haven't got a decent mic at all as of now :/
