Stillness

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

Stillness

Eternal lights flicker

In a distant sky.

Where have you gone;

Why did you die?

When I first saw you,

You stole my heart,

And until this awful day,

We have never been apart.

I look to the heavens,

Hoping to see you anew.

Where have you gone?

I’m searching for you.

My painful cries

Fill the dark of night.

I need your arms

To hold me tight.

Where have you gone?

Show me the place

So I can once again see

The smile on your face.

We met life’s challenges

And somehow made it through.

But how do I do it

Alone without you?

I know you are in my heart,

But I long to see your face.

Memories of yesterday

Leave only a trace.

There’s emptiness now

That nothing can fill.

I so need to find you

So I, too, can be still.
