I Will Always Be Missing You - Poem by Cecil (C.J.) Krieger

How I long
For the cold winter winds
To stop blowing
And the chimes
Outside my house
To still into silence

I have become a prisoner
In a cage
Of my own making
A cage of velvet's and summers
That hold me as well
As any steel bars

With each breath
I look about
And wonder
Why this life
That I have chosen
Fits me so well

The pains of old age
Have fallen upon me
As I move about
Without a snap
In my step
Or a smile in my heart

I don’t know
Who you are
But I have missed you
And I fear
That no matter
What life brings

I will always be
Missing you
That is why
I have chosen this day
To let winter in
And say goodbye… forever
