I'm still right here


They say that it will be okay,
It will all work out in the end.
They say that there is light ahead,
Just around the bend.
I feel the sun upon my face,
And yet, there is a chill.
I know you do not think of me,
And yet, I love you still.
Your hands would warm my shoulders.
Your breath would warm my face;
And yet, you do not think of me.
I am out of place.
How can you never think of me?
Do you never speak my name?
I once was what you wanted,
And I am still the same.
I wonder about the night that you left,
Did you even shed a tear?
Now you have gone somewhere else,
And I am still right here.
My thoughts are lying broken,
Scattered pieces here and there.
I don't attempt to collect them,
They have gone beyond repair.
The rain falls in sheets now,
You always hated the rain.
I would have stopped it for you.
I could have eased the pain.
We might have had the sun you know,
Instead of only gray.
We might have been perfection,
But instead you went away.
They say that it will be okay,
My heart will surely mend.
If everything is not okay,
Then it is not the end.

Oh, the ending was so powerful. Well, the whole THING was powerful, but the ending was fabulous. I hope that getting this out is helpful to you. Still good thoughts your way.

What a poem. I know it hurts. There is nothing we can say or do to make you feel better. I wish I could give you a hug.

This is not an attempt to promote my new blog.. but if you go to my Positively Powerful Blog (on top and in side bar of my soggy doggy blog, you will see an angel card that I randomly pulled this morning. When I did, it reminded me of you. That blog is filled with positive messages

Things will work out the way they are supposed to

I just wanted to let you know that you are still in my thoughts and prayers. I know you are hurting, so I wanted to send some loving thoughts your way.
