A poem for Greg


I cry myself to sleep

Alone in this big bed

Thinking of all the things

I could and should have said.

 

Now your gone

And I'm alone

To raise our kids

In this, our home.

 

No one to lean on,

Nowhere to turn

All Alone am I

It's not fair I say as quietly I cry,

You my dear sweet love

Should have never had to die.

Someone drank

Got behind the wheel

Now my heart is broken

And I wish that it would heal.

 

How long will this pain last?

This I do not know.

I try to hide them silently,

These tears I do not show.

 

I'm on a roller coaster ride

That I do not like at all

I feel like my shoes aren't tied

At any minute I could fall.

 

I miss you so much dear

Your so far, far away.

My heart, it hurts so much

There are no words to say.

 

I guess for now I'll just cry myself to sleep

Alone in this big empty bed

Sorry for the things that I wish

Could and should have said.

 

But I never got the chance

And now I never will.
