Parting


I could feel the Hole in my chest.
There is now one less to carry on your family crest.
How i wished this time would never come.
No one was here to stop your heart from giving the final drum.

You came and you went so fast.
It cast a big black shadow around me that will last.
it feels like the tears are everlasting.
There are so many difficult things, but this one is the worst, parting.

People all come and say, 'it will be okay'.
That's not what I want to hear them say.
I want to hear that it was all a bad dream
and that you are fine and we are still a team.

But I guess my dream has turned into a nightmare
and you are being drawn back into the demons lair.
Or if you are lucky you are being taken to the golden gates in the sky,
but one day i hope we will again be able to see eye to eye.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
