You'Ll Never Know This Pain - Poem by jess schwarcz

Can you turn this world around?
Can you right my life from upside down?
Can you crash through fear of that night,
Putting things in order, making things all right?

She made the darkness into light.
She made the tears turn, to disappear.
She made it so easy, I didn’t have to fight.
She made everything seem all right.
She laced a smile on my face.
She made me laugh, through the darkest times.
She made me believe the world wasn’t the darkest night.
She made everything seem all right.

The September day she fell down,
My world was turned around,
The day she kissed me goodbye,
My life turned upside down.
And when I looked towards the stars that night,
It took everything I had for the tears to fight.
The shooting stars meant nothing to me,
For my greatest wish was never to be.

A thousand days went by,
As the days grew colder, I grew older.
She wasn’t there to make me feel young,
Our song wasn’t to ever again be sung.
Her blankets hung in my room,
Tack lined the walls, her private tomb.
The winter came, covered the ground,
I looked for her, but she was never found.

The spring came, filling her grave with flowers,
And fresh grass came, filling her pastures.
New foals everywhere, running around,
But it was her I looked for, and never found.
The summer’s here, and the bugs are out,
Shows around the corner, with another horse, another rout.
At home, their hoof prints lace the ground,
But it’s Jade I’ll look for, until she’s found.

Can you turn this world around?
Can you right my life from upside down?
Can you crash through the night full of fear,
And help put things in order, make things all right?

She made the darkness into light.
She made the tears turn around, to disappear.
She made it so easy, I didn’t have to fight.
She made everything all right.
She laced a smile on my face.
She made me laugh, through the darkest times.
She made be believe the world wasn’t the darkest night.
She made everything all right.

Don’t say you know my pain,
Just another day, another rain.
Don’t try to understand,
Cause when you fall from this,
You won’t be “fine” when you land.
So leave me alone, let me be.
You’ll never know my pain,
You’ll never see.

So don’t say you know my pain,
Just another day, another rain.
Don’t try to understand,
Cause when you fall from this,
You won’t be “fine” when you land.
So leave me alone, let me be.
You’ll never know my pain,
You’ll never see.

    We cannot feel another's pain but the want to help others when they have pain is certainly there.
    Heartfelt are your words and may you find strength. Thank You
