What Dreams May Come
“Ann” – Part 2
I never said good-bye.
I never got to say good-bye.
When death took our children
I was devastated,
But when old man death took you
I was crushed.
I could not understand.
I could not live without you all.
How could I go on?
I lost my wit and my mind.
So, I wrote to you.
I didn’t know if you could hear.
I wasn’t sure if you could see.
What can I do?
I cannot live without you,
You and I were soul mates.
We each were the final pieces
To the puzzle of our lives,
But now the pieces are scattered.
What am I to do?
I have given up on hope,
I was suddenly filled with despair.
Life was not worth living without you.
I recall hideous things from a broken house of dreams.
It was all my fault, all my doing,
But I saw a kind face
Who spoke to me of his heart.
He left and came back
The words he used made me feel warm.
The words he spoke, awakened me from a slumber
He felt cold and went to sleep, his head in my lap.
I remember! I’m awake!
I called your name, but you heard me not.
So, I closed my eyes and thought.
Thought where I wanted to be.
The next thing I knew
You were with me!
And we were in the heavenly.
Sometimes, when you loose, you win.
Never give up, never loose hope.
