River

October 25 2011

It never really occurred to me
How bad I would really miss you
After this tragic crime
This accident that we would never see
Coming, it hit your soul and you flew
And I wish I knew that it would take me some time
To realize that you are gone
Gone and unable to speak
To me, gone and unable to hold
Me, gone and unable to see when dawn
Breaks, gone and unable to see the creek
And feel the waters cold
Touch, yes my dear friend
My love, my buddy, my soul
Mate, I am afraid you’ve taken
Part of my heart and i’m unable to mend
This hole, this monstrous hole
That seems to keep me shaken
From knowing that you have left us

I wish I could have found a way
To change this horrible fate
That was set on your path
That would throw my feelings a stray
And make me wonder and hate
The feelings that destiny’s wrath
Have bestowed upon your grave
The grave I cried over as tears
Flowed from my face like a raging river
Making me wish I didn’t misbehave
Or give in to all my aching fears
That make my shaking bones quiver
As I set that rose upon your stone
Which engraves “here lies” and
I slide my fingers over the words
That have somehow thrown
Out my feelings and I’m unable to withstand
This outburst of thoughts running like herds
Of animals escaping from the prison
It’s been kept in for years or
What seems like a lifetime
Of bundled up pain that has risen
And surfaced as hot bubbles that hit the shore
That singe the skin of this crime
That took you away from me
And I wish I could bring you back
