Warm wind through the trees, it ripples the leaves
the sky up above, rich in blue.
While white clouds caress the bottomless sky
I’m frozen inside, looking out
I’m numb with the pain, lived over again
my focus is blurry and grim.
I’m missing a main piece of jigsaw, it’s gone
I think of the loss that is mine.
Cause ‘never again’ is hard to believe.
its talons have shut out the hope.
This cavern of loss will swallow me up.
I stumble my way down life’s path.
But small glints of light, they loosen the ice.
a part of me died with my dad.
Acceptance is tough, truth heightens the pain
as memories are all that I have.
