Thief - Poem by Haley Martin

Once the center of your world,
I am offered no emotion.
Pain almost too much to bear
Can you sense that I am here?
I seek the essence in your eyes
there just yesterday,
a common thief stole you away,
please remember me.

Your recall is lost in gray.
Memories elude you...tucked away.
The angels gather memoirs now
for gifting on another day.

Sheltered ‘ neath your noble bough,
secure in tenderness,
we traversed a circle, unaware,
a lair the cruelest thief did share,
he lay in wait among the years.

My hand lies on your shoulder now,
Where once my tears did fall.
Left bereft of choice,
to fade from memory.
grandad, when we meet again,
please remember me.
