The Unwanted Farewell



All alone you run after thin air 

HE doesn't hear your cries 

for he's long gone 

Despair and disbelief surround you, 

choking you, depriving you of happiness,

you hear your friends, family, and neighbors calling out to you

reaching for you.......

but you are behind emotional plexiglass 

you can't find your voice or energy to call back

for you used it all for the screaming, pleading, and crying of his name. 

The name you associate with joy and happy memories. 

Memories that you hold onto with all your being. 

sooner or later you will look back and realize 

this is what they meant when they spoke. 

It snuck up on you without warning.
