Gone

by Teatart

I imagined a lifetime
A lifetime to hold you
A lifetime of memories

I imagined there would be time
Time to watch you grow
Time to love you

I foresaw a future
A future of laughs and smiles
A future of happy memories

Although you were so small
And the world was yet to know you
I looked forward and saw it all

I saw you
I saw how much I already loved you
I saw how my life would never be the same without you

Now you are gone
Before my dreams materialised
And my life really isn’t the same with you gone.

Black

by Teatart

As I sit here silently crying
I feel the emptiness where
Your presence should be
I pray that I will
Never be as you were
Imprisoned by the overwhelming loneliness
A gull resting on the edge of the dock
With no thought to the ‘morrow
But only to the past

I hold your hand
I see your smile
I hear your voice …
“I’ll always love you”
Echoing against the walls
Resounding over and over and over

Why is it then that you left me?
As a father you did wrong,
As a man you did wrong,
Yet you are perfect in every way
Forever etched in the embankments of my memory.

The one and only you will ever be.
