>When You Left

>When you left my body wept the dance of solitude
My mind screamed silently and I instantly got an attitude
I felt as if I wasn’t coming nor going
My heart was on my sleeve and I didn’t care if it was showing
I felt as if I couldn’t even take a breath
Daily I looked at a picture that you had left
My eyes would feel the sting of the tears that wouldn’t stop
I felt for someone else’s life that I’d like to swap
Everyday I woke to an inevitable nightmare
I did my days not really being aware
I couldn’t think let alone eat
And I would’ve killed for a good nights sleep
The day came when I cried no more
And I didn’t think the thoughts I had before
My body no longer involuntarily wept
My eyes looked upward to guide my steps
My mind became clearer as I challenged each new day
And as the weeks went on I learned to be thankful and pray
Here it is now many years later
I’m thanking God for the experience and the chance to become greater!
