Until you could no longer hear me say I love you.
I did not know that days could be so long
Until night came without you on my pillow.
I did not know songs could sound so harsh
Until your voice was forever silenced.
I did not know tears could burn so brutally
Until I could not stop crying for you.
I did not know pain could hurt so continually
Until I realized that you are no more.
I did not realize the nature of your being
Until I saw the world stop at your death.
I did not know life could be so empty
Until your smile was torn from my heart.
I did not know that I could love so deeply
Until that which I loved was taken away.
Every place I go
Every thing I do
Every sight I see
Reminds me of you
Every cloud above
Every flower that blooms
Every bird that sings
Brings on this gloom
Every walk my feet allow
Every taste I partake
Every leaf on every tree
My senses cannot partake
Every face that smiles at me
Every hug that hugs me back
Every scream trapped inside
Reminds me life is black
Every breath I take
Reminds me you’re not here
