Anymore - Poem by Mandy lynn

Empty chair in a room 
Its where i could always find you 
Your once loud quitars now hang silent 
On the wall 
Your old worn out shoes by the door 
Because you dont need them anymore 

A house now full of tears 
I remember happiness once lived here 
Now our hearts fill so sore 
Because your not here anymore 

My mamas eyes filled with tears that night 
She no longer believes in happily ever after now 
Its not right you never got your chance to fight 
I dont know if mama can take it if she does i dont know how i ask myself why what did god take you for did he think we didnt need you anymore 

I wacthed as you took your very last breath 
A man so strong quickly felt weak a body so tired 
And very sore god whispered my child come home and you wont hurt anymore

Poet's Notes about The Poem

My dad was diagnosed with late stage liver cancer on fathers day Just 6wks before he passed away as a daddies girl it was hard enough to know that my dad was dying then it actually happened so quickly. I wasn't ready not even close to prepared but I realize we never are ready or prepared. I use poetry since then to get my emotions out. This was my very first poem written the day after his passing
