I Mourn

Written by: Carmen Castro

I mourn you every waking day
It's like mourning the sun on the darkest day

I mourn you now with silent cries
A river of heartache that never dries 

I miss you so much I'm emotionally drained
I think of you and smile but then it's followed by pain

I mourn you in the present while I cling on to the past
Hoping that your memory will forever last

I mourn you right now like I did yesterday
Hoping memory doesn't fail and you'll start to fade

I mourn the fact that you were gone in a breath 
I mourn because I'm human and can't accept death
