Goodbye

Tears will not fall, I ache in my heart.

You’ll miss my birthday, the day that Will starts

his first day at school, Dad’s last day at work,

the day that I publish my first book.

A gap sits beside us all now

Something went with you, left us to drown.

We watched you go, a piece at a time

20 years suffering has not been kind

We do not know how we should feel.

We smile, embrace, kiss cheeks and steal

looks at the clock, wish we weren’t here.

Shake hands with family, feel nothing but fear

Wont see you again, it seems so long.

Goodbye forever, just like that, gone.
