Missing him so very much...
BEST OF THE RISING STARS AWARDBY Gabriella , NOVEMBER 2014
Standing in this grim desolation
Thinking of forgotten lives
There is no kind of soft consolation
He is gone; are there afterlives?
The only chance I had for existing
He was my Truelove
What do I do now? I’m just breathing
He was the only chance I had for love.
Where do I go now, where do I sit?
I could not for the life of me remember
If hugging was something we ever did
But my arms are empty now, cold as amber.
Where are you up there? Can you see me?
I am lonely down here and need you
I know I must let you hereafter be
I’ll learn to live not anymore as two.
I wanted to wander with you into bliss
But fate calls long distance warning
And I from you will never get another kiss
And miss you so much my darling.
(For Merrell Williams Jr., my deceased husband, 2013)
