Missing You Still

 

Years have gone since you left me and went so far away,

Since then you have entered my thoughts almost every day,

Often I wish to catch a glance of you, or feel you close by me,

I’d hoped we’d still be in contact, in some other way may be?

But, you’ve gone for good, of that I now am certainly sure,

I won’t see you, or hold you, or hear your voice any more.

 

I should’ve known this, as that day I held your hand in mine,

And watched, as your chest rose and fell that last time,

I stood quietly, in disbelief as you slipped away so softly,

I cried over you, as your soul drifted away, silently and gently.

But somehow, in some way, it still doesn’t seem to be true,

I know you died, I just didn’t know that it was the end of you.

 

Your pain too strong; you couldn’t go on, the battle already lost,

I’d always thought you’d continue, in more than just my thoughts.

At first I felt relief, that I needn’t worry about you anymore,

That was soon replaced with the guilt, that I hadn’t done more.

I know at least that you were proud of me no matter what I do.

I wish you were still here with me but, I’ll still carry on for you.

 

You gave me life, watched me grow, surrounding me with cuddles,

You guided me, mopped my tears as I learnt about life’s struggles,

For my whole life you were as constant as the moon and the stars,

It’s true what they say you do indeed still live on if only in my heart,

I wish so deeply, for one last encounter, no matter how small or brief,

To sense you are near and share with you my feelings of loss and grief.
