They don't know what
they leave behind
they don't know
what we've lost
the only thing we have
left of them
is the memories
in our hearts

When they have departed
there is sadness and pain
the emptiness that is left
feels like a dark void
in our soul

To see them again
and gaze upon their face
to hear their voice
call our name
to reach out and
touch their hand
one more time
is all we ask

In the following years
we will learn how to cope
we will look back and smile
and think of the good
we will remember how they
used to make us laugh
we will try to recapture
what our world was like
when they were here with us
so we can find peace
once again

Love heals everything
