Anymore - Poem by mandy celino

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
