Gone


I am dead, gone forever
I wonder why this happened to me
I hear my loved ones cry
I see them suffering
I want to tell them it will be alright
I am dead, gone forever

I pretend they can still feel me there with them
I feel so helpless
I touch my coffin as they lower my body into the ground
I worry people will forget me
I cry because they cry
I am dead, gone forever

I understand I must go
I say I love you
I dream of the day I will be with them again
I try and console them silently
I hope they will be alright
I am dead, gone forever

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
