Whose was the hand that guided your way,

kept you from harm each day while you played.

whose were the words that soothed your soul,

lost in the darkness of life so cruel.


Gone are the dreams of yester years,

hidden between realms of dirt and tears.

Who were your loved ones all drenched with glee,

whose were the arms that held and embraced thee.


Time lays it arms all heavy with chime,

pressing on memories forever enshrined.

Pain has a way of marking each day,

like the tick of clock, its funny that way.

Always aware of what lies between,

hidden from sight but never a dream.


Where are the heavens that poured from their gaze,

lost in translation on someones dead face.

I see through the chasm of your own sweet pain,

how time tipped its hand and in your soul remained.

Thank you Jaki.  I can feel the loss.

My mother lost her father at a young age, this poem was inspired by her loss. 

Thanks John.
