I Turned Around He Was Gone
Author: Terrie*


he was there
this I saw
I turned around
to find he was gone
has my mind gone mad?

at night
I focus on him and i
and the life
we would of had

then the thought
turns into a cloud
what was I thinking ?

I try to see life beyond
it becomes a mystery
of life beyond the grave
I stop myself I am not so brave

in my mind I try to contain
all that there was
when he was alive
and the blanks automatically fill in

I try to go past that fine line
but like a magnet
it keeps pulling me back

I keep hitting a wall of glass
I don't want to lose
or let go of the memories..
but I do want to move on with my life...
