~ If Only You Could Have Stayed ~

By Catherine Lamberton

Constantly thinking,

never to be the same,

the tears fall quickly

just hearing your name.

Silence is golden

yet not anymore

silence brings thoughts

I just can’t ignore.

The nights are sleepless,

dreams out of reach.

Crying in my pillow

to you I beseech.

Surrounded by family,

I still feel alone.

My heart is so empty,

this pain I must own.

I wish I could hug you

and just see your face.

But now I have memories

to stand in your place.

Gone but not forgotten,

that’s what they say.

Of course that is true…

but if only you could of stayed.
