Gone - A Poem

Updated on October 7, 2013


I can hear the sounds

Beating so loud inside my head

With words that I should have said

As I drown in my regrets


How I wish

I could take back the words I never said


Said I'd see you soon
But that was all a distant memory

If only I knew how time was of the essence


Cause with you gone now

Each time the wind blows

Each time the rain falls

Each time darkness arises,

I hear your voice echoing

So I talk to the shadows

Hoping you might catch my whisper


So many questions

Left unanswered

As I sit here
talking to myself
knowing that you can't hear me anymore


The longer I stand here

The louder my silence gets
Cause with you gone now

I feel melancholy

      Those empty feelings can be replaced. Now a little smarter and wiser for the next experience.

      Forever Gone: Momma us to say, "You want miss the water 'til the well runs dry." This poem touches the very realm of that we need to cherish our love ones and things...I feel you.

      Thanks for sharing...and reminding.
