Because You Will Be Gone


I will miss you sore,
And think about you a million ways.
No oil can soothe
This sore you're leaving behind.

I will mourn daily,
Even if you are not dead.
I will mourn. Yes!
For a part of me will be dead.

I am too ashamed to cry,
Else the world thinks me not a man,
But i'll let it trickle down,
A dropp everyday till i die.

I will dream of wealth.
I will dream of glamour.
I will dream of hope,
But no more shall i dream of love.

As i walk the remainder of life,
I know happiness is forever hindered
And darkness forever present,
For you were my happiness and my light.

I'll miss you.
Everyday for the remainder of my life,
I'll mourn and weep and cry,
Because you will be gone.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
