Like a project that never gets completed
Like a bad nightmare that keeps being repeated
A moment; A glimpse
A life taken too quick
The aching inside
Nothing to take it away and nowhere to hide
How do you go on after this?
How can anything ever make you feel bliss?
The tears they gather like a bad rain storm
The days, weeks, and months are anything but the norm
It floods your mind and captures your soul
The wrinkles and bags on your face are proof that the pain has taken its toll
Grief so great and loss so real
When you just pray each day not to feel
Why so quick, so final, so complete, the end?
How many more tears do we shed before our hearts begin to mend?
Why? is the questions with no answers in sight
Why that minute? that second? that night?
Didn’t we love you enough to make you want to stay?
Why did God need you and have to take you away?
We need you We love you
We just had you back
Why was your spirit sad and your willpower lacked?
Why and Who and When and How, in my mind play over and over
Like the endless search for a four leaf clover
How do we find the comfort in our hearts to know you are at peace?
When those of us left here on earth find nothing but sadness in the least
The unspoken words, the unfinished plans, the promising future, the smiles, hugs and kisses robbed forever
How do we pick up our broken hearts and begin the next endeavor?
Are you happy or are you sad?, do you miss us? or are you mad?
Why was 43 years all God said you could have?
Your life wasn’t finished -so much more you could have had………
In Loving Memory of my beloved brother
