My Life Will Go On - Poem by Kyle Schlicher

my life will go on
for the time being.

two friends
will not see the sunset

the clean up has begun
but the vision
will remain.

two friends,
only hours ago,
reading letters from home.

the sun still shines
upon the sandbags
where the blood has dried.

i will let the memory
crawl across
this hopelessness
i am burdened with.

for the time being
my life will go on.

    Poignant and melancholic, a sadness at the loss of two who were so vibrant and alive, now gone. Touched my heart with your memory, brought tears to my eyes. Feelings of hopelessness confirm their death as life goes on. Heart wrenching, subdued, reality brought to bear upon this mind. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
