The light of day is fading As evening transforms the sky Gone from my world forever I cannot tell you good-bye The beating of my broken heart Fills the quiet of our home The clock ticks away the hours Of another weary day alone Uncertainty now awaits me In a future so hard to face Your hearty laughter haunts me I miss the warmth of your embrace A piece of my empty, aching heart Will always be reserved for you Sweet memories engulf my being As each wasted day is through Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© October 30, 2008 All Rights Reserved
