There's something that passes
Between two people
When they first meet.
The instant connection they seem to have,
Especially when it's from family member to newborn.
That family connection
Then time passes, and memories are made.
Love is shared.
Bonds are made stronger.
But then there comes a time when all of us have to leave
Our earthly selves
B E H I N D,
Leaving loved ones and friends with only a memory of us.
The pain, the
S H A T T E R I N G
Of our hearts when there is no longer
Someone we can cling to,
Someone we can laugh with,
You want so desperately
To hang on,
To keep them with you,
But you can't and you realize that they're
G O N E
For good, in a separate place entirely
Where they are completely out of your reach.
You feel so
B R O K E N
And you never thought pain like this existed.
But it does.
And you struggle to
C O P E.
They take theirselves to the grave, spirit roaming still.
But your love, so
G R A V E L Y
Deep for them, couldn't save them.
