The Painful Time

I heard the news,

the shock made me numb;

and everyone gathered,

they all did come.

I expected you

to be part of the mix

and, of course, you weren’t

but time continues its ticks.

You’re not coming back

even though it’s a new day

and time continues;

everyone has gone away.

I’m here, you’re not,

facing the new dawn

and the silence reminds me

you are really gone.

I don’t need counsel,

I don’t need to be diagnosed

I can just tell this is the time

that will hurt the most.
