My Poem of the Day

(09/18/14)

If You Leave©

If you leave

I may laugh I may cry

Not because it’s funny

It’s because you left me here on my own

With no direction

No plan in place

All my dreams were meant to be partnered with you

Now I have to find new ones that don’t include you

If I cry

It’s because I’m lonely without you

My life has been all about you

There’s never been another that makes me see myself as you did

I fear that I will lose myself from within

That I will slip into the darkness

Never to be seen again

My emotions get the best of me

So the best I can do for my own survival

I to push the reset button and begin again without you

Erase the memory of what we once were together

Letting go of everything

Allowing myself to try something different

With someone other than you

This is what’s to come

Here is a little music of the same name by a great band to go with my poem.

OMD is an amazing band that I still love to this day.

My Poem of the Day

(08/29/14)

Your Hand

Feelings of regret

Wishing I had listened

That I had heard your cries

That I was there to hold your hand

In sickness and in health

Through thick and thin

I should have been there

But I let work get in the way

I couldn’t put my foot down

I didn’t demand the time off

And I slowly let you slip away

And now that you’re gone

I sit here alone in the darkness

No more work

Worse than that

No more you

Now left not knowing

Where to turn

What to do

My apologies fall on deaf ears

The only opinion that matters is yours

And you can no longer hear me

Life will never be the same

I feel I may go insane

If only I could find a way

To turn back the clock

And

Just hold your hand

My Poem of the Day

(08/24/14)

Without You Now

Without you now my days are always nights

My laughs become cries

My ups become downs

My smiles become frowns

I try to stop all that’s now upside down

You were the life in my step

The beat in my heart

The jump in my skip

You were the light in my life

Now I can’t seem to go on without you

It’s hard to imagine

But I know I must

So I trust you to help me find my way

To continue living on

Without you now

My Poem of the Day

(08/17/14)

A Wish for More Time

I haven’t seen you lately

But my thoughts are always with you

Each day that passes I wish there were more hours in the day

I wish there weren’t so many miles between us

I wish I had spent more time telling you all the things I’ve wanted to say

Now there is no chance for you to know all I had to share

I find myself wondering if you could have ever known

All that I felt for you

All the times I remember

All the days I was thankful to have you in my life

Thankful for all you had done

If I tell you now will you hear me

Will you forgive me for not telling you sooner

Will you watch over me

Will I get to see you again some day

Oh, how I wish I had more time to say all I wanted to say

And to hold you close again

Into the Light I Go

To all those I love and to who have loved me

I’ve lived a life full of grace

Filled with all that I had hoped to do and see

There may have been a few things left undone

But worry not, for I will not

Life’s been good for I had you in it

Life was hard, but now I can rest

I take with me all your love

That will comfort me while I’m gone

I look to you to live your lives

With love and fond memories

Not grief and sadness

Life is precious

Don’t waste time on things lost

Work to make a change and bring happiness to others

I’ll be here watching to see that you are ok

The light will protect and guide me as hope to do for you too

Here Into the Light I Go
