A Son's Lament

"A Son’s Lament"

Why did you have to leave?
I can still feel the warmth of your touch on my cheek.
It was a beautiful day so we decided to celebrate.
It was just you and me, and I’ll never forget what we did.
The smiles we shared and the sound of our laughs.
Your laugh, the laugh that echoes in my ears as I dream.
Why did you have to leave?
That joyous day we shared.
I wish we could have more, just you and me.
No more can I see you, no more days that carefree.
I’m left alone in this world, never again to feel your love.
Why did you have to leave?
