Poem By brian odongo
The loss of a loved one is a hard thing to face,
The world speeds past, you can’t keep up the pace.
The minutes blur to hours and then into days,
Everything’s confusing, your mind in a haze.
This misery you fear will never end,
A pain your heart can’t comprehend.
In the silence of the night you ask yourself why?
And can’t find the strength to say goodbye.
Your eyes filled with tears, your heart broken in two,
It’s now that you wonder how you will make it thru.
But as the years start passing by,
You’ll notice the sunset in the sky.
The memories now bring a laugh and a smile,
You notice the tears haven’t flown in awhile.
Your life is now different, things aren’t the same,
But it can still be wonderful, even though it’s changed.
