Missing You

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Missing You

I sit alone now in the darkness of despair.

I cry my silent tears.

My heart is broken into a million tiny pieces.

The silence is deafening to my ears.

The darkness frightens me.

The shadows climb the wall.

I hear footsteps walking,

Passing through the hall.

The loneliness surrounds me;

It takes my breath away.

This is the pattern of my life

Since that awful, dreadful day.

Without a clue,

Without a hint

Of what was yet to be,

God called you home

To be with him

And took you away from me.

I walk, I talk. I carry on

When the sun pokes out its head,

But when darkness falls

And evening comes,

I cannot go to bed.

For this is when I miss you most of all.

When I curl into a little ball

And cry those silent tears.

Watching the shadows

And missing you.
