For Tonight I'll Cry

By: Tyner Twine No one knew it was coming, No one knew that you’ll be leaving No one knew you were hurting, No one knew you were dying. Amongst the bright lights of the festivity, Yours slowly starts to fade, It hurts more to know the reality That nothing can ever be done or said Memories of my hands holding your tiny body And memories of when I saved your life I thought everything will be steady But now, you’ve left our family. I feel so shallow As despair starts to swallow Guilt starts to follow… I feel so hallow I wish there was more time to be with you Turn back time so I won’t cry like this Keep you close to me, At least before you close your eyes. What’s so hard is I can’t ever deny Is the fact that I Wasn’t even by your side At least to say goodbye. Outside, the stars shine The winds sighs, In your humble grave you lie, There goes the white butterfly So for tonight I’ll cry

A beautiful, sad poem, very touching! I can share the pain and I hope it was not based on a real experience!
