Nobody Knew

A crime was never perpetrated.
His sentence underestimated.
A life concealed beyond their view.
An innocent man nobody knew.

He died when no one came around.
They lied so truth was never found.
An empty heart became his home.
Where he now writes another poem.

The world keeps turning and changing course.
From our tomorrow's, you can't divorce.
Even if God brings you home.
Someone else will write a poem.

We have no choice but to go on.
Remembering the one's who've gone.
And with each fiber of our being.
It's them, we hope we will be seeing.

Blessed be our love that God connected us with. Amen.

    Deeply sad yet a lonesome heart can relate. Though I disagree that it is a stupid's just deep.

    Our Robert is never stupid, at least from my point of view. Who else writes such exquisite comments in witty rhyme. Wasn't sure you speak of yourself here so thought I'd clear the air and let you know how special you are! Love, *Lizzie* :)

    far from stupid! the ending was surprising, which made the poem that much more intereting...
