Two Weeks

Two weeks have gone, since we spoke last and all I see are flashes of a distant past The mourners came and celebrated Your life now over, now belated I twist and turn but find no causality that would lead me to a path of normality To turn me around to the normal life That existed before, now I lean on my wife Where did you go, I implore as my silent tears flow for evermore Once you were here, now you are gone Did I ever notice how brightly you shone Did I feel your emotions, did I see your tears I know I was aware of your inner fears A void has opened, dare it be filled Without you here I feel ever chilled The silence surrounds me Absence is no friend To whom of my life did I so lend The inner me that was once here Now seeks to shed that inner tear But the silence engulfs my by rote As death emotes the silence emitted from my throat Where are you now, do you see my fear How can I continue knowing that you are not here?
