When You'Re Gone... - Poem by Jacqui Broad

How many sorrow in a single tear?
Four seasons in one day, instead of a year.
How many seconds in a stretched-out day?
I miss you when you are away.
How many songs can one guitar play?
When I long to hear the words you used to say.
How many times I've wished you wouldn't disappear?
Save me, I think tears and loneliness are creeping near...

    How many poems can you write,
    during those nights you can't see his eyes?

    Nice work!
