Missing You Joe

I got to school today
Opened my locker
And put my things away.
Seen something in the corner of my eye
Your picture is what I have seen
Staring at your smile made me cry.

My memories of you are slowly fading away
I don’t want to forget you
I think about you everyday.

I don’t remember the sound of your voice
I don’t remember how you laughed
I don’t want to forget you.

I wish I could go back
To the day I lost you
Tell you that you don’t have to leave.

I need you by my side
I can’t picture you anymore
Your house is so empty without you
I want to always remember you.

I know you had to go
You were hurting inside.
I have to realize that you are in a better place
Than you were down here.

How are you now?
Are you better now?
I really miss you
I wish I could have talked to you
It feels like it’s my fault that I didn’t.

This year will be year five
That I have lived so far
Without you near me.
I know you are in my heart
Never will I forget you.
I hope I don’t anyway.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
