Your Final Day
Author: Terrie*


standing by your coffin with my eyes tearing and red
i've become numb and literally gone brain-dead
no thoughts appear within my mind
absolutely non of any kind

at one time I was able to feel what I couldn't see
how could thispossibly be?
here I stand wishing for thoughts to appear
but all thoughts quickly disappear

a simple verse that I wrote for you made me weak
I simply couldn’t speak
my heart has never felt like this before
it drained me even more
when they presented me w/your flag ,my eyes could not be dried
I think a part of me followed you when you died

my tears were set in their own mode
my heart feels like at any given time it will explode
I need to feel you next to me just one more time for security
my father-in-law has no clue
he still thinks your around
I simply could not take that thought away from him

he has alzheimers ,in a way I wish I had it too
I tucked myself away from the crowd
oh honey I'm gonna miss hearing you snore in the middle of the night
music to my ears and my reasurance that you were alive and gonna turn around to hold me tight
I cannot believe that you won't be here to share the future with me

whose gonna rescue me when I need to be hugged ?
whose gonna be there to love me?
I do not know what to do
I do not think I can go thru for the rest of my life like this w/o you
now that you are no longer alive
how will I survive?
I am so scared and all alone...
