For Someone.... - Poem by Dean du Preez

Its never too easy, its sometimes too hard, mending broken glass in my back yard...

Now i know what peace is, sifting through broken pieces, i had it once and held it tight, but now i lie here alone at night...

All of a sudden i have to learn something new, learn to live without the presence of you, but im not alone and im not ok but i know i have to make it today....

I fight back tears as i realise my fears, i try to hold back but im not strong like that, im only human im only me im only asking for somebody to see...

But who will see and who will know, the depth of my heart as it expresses sorrow, but i still smile and i still shine because this was your time and i continue to live till its mine...

I want to whisper i love you, i want you to hear, did you know that i loved you and held you so dear....

Of course you did what am i thinking, and you returned such love without even blinking, I want you to know i still call your name, and if i close my eyes i hear the same...

I smile when the sun shines, i smile when it rains, i smile when the thunder conceals my pains....Our little boy still needs a best shot at life, i wont let anything cut that off with a knife....

It's a cruel, crazy, beautiful world, i remember those words from when i was once a young girl, i never understood then and even less now, but ill leave that for tomorrow and focus on now...

Baby steps as i walk on broken glass, each moment different to the last, i float away to an unknown place where i find peace in seeing your face....

Emotions are wild emotions are strong i cant blame myself cos ive done nothing wrong, all i can promise myself is ill do my best cos this is not the end, just a really tough test...
