Alone - Poem by Michael Keenan

Your worlds' just been shattered
There's chaos all around
Your wifes had a brain haemorrhage
She's lying dead on the ground

Your mind's in a whirl
You try to take stock
While things unfurl
You're in complete shock


You try to focus in your mind
To make sense of what has been
There's going on- life's so unkind
Yet another broken dream

She was your life, your pal and friend
Sure no one can replace
But think a while it's not the end
The next step is not a race.

Life goes on, much to reflect
Where is it going to lead
You always loved her with much respect
Although friendship you now may need.

Treasured memories will always fill your mind
She will always be the best
So anyone else that you may find
Will face the sternest test.

Most times I'm sure would be the case
That your happiness she would want
If you meet another it's no disgrace
Life for simply must go on.

No one else can easily replace
The one that you held dear
Some may try to fill that space
And some may come fairly near.

Your life, your right, you do your best
Life will never be quite the same
Make sure any change is heaven blest
Because life is not a game.
