Rock And Tear - Poem by Mowie DeCorp

I begin to wander the deep forest floor

and come upon a smooth gray rock

With this rock I begin to wonder

why am I here in the forest right now?

I am in the forest to contemplate my thoughts

and make sure that I am making the right decisions

As I pick up this beatiful rock

a tear begins to fall from my eye

The texture of this rock

reminds me of my boyfriends soft caress

and the smoothness brings back memories

of how smooth our relationship used to be

As I clench this rock even harder,

tears keep falling from my eyes

Why did my boyfriend have to die

and why did it have to happen to me

I do not know what I did wrong

but I know I do not deserve this pain

for I do not know if I can go on living my life

because I feel there is nothing else to gain

As one last tear falls from my eye

I begin to walk away from the forest

I made up my mind of what to do next

I will keep this precious rock in my life

This rock is not just a rock

it is a rock that reminds me of all the times

I have had with my boyfriend before he died

This rock is now my world and now my life

I will remember all the times we had

the good ones as well as the bad

but with this rock I hold

I know my boyfriend is always my piece of gold
