Tears of sadness fill my heart,
For when does one decide it’s time to depart,
Not making a call to have a conversation and chat,
To talk about what’s worrying you under your hat.
This evening my heart feels heavy and sad,
For young lives that end before they start,
What sorrow, pain and sadness must mist their view,
If only they knew how much they were loved – if only they knew.
I don’t even know this young man,
But I know he’s left a hole,
Friends and family will unimaginably miss,
Such a beautiful young soul.
May he sleep now in peace,
No more troubles to bare,
No worry and doubts to carry,
That he feels unable to share.
It’s at time like this I realise how precious life is,
To wake in the morning with a smile and a kiss,
To breathe in and out with zest for the day,
Even when frustrating and AAAAGHHHH,
I know to breathe in and breathe out – and let go to clear the way.
I offer you my heart to know that I care,
In the hope it will bring comfort to ease your despair,
A hole has been left in many lives,
But you have good memories and when the time is right – to cherish and share.
With love, Emma x
