A Year On, The Sparkle Gone

I closed the lids

On distant eyes

That told me you were gone

I kissed your brow

And promised that

We’d meet before too long

You waited for me

To return

Before you would let go

The memories

Only the two of us

Could ever know

Dear Father I am sorry

That your son

Could not eclipse

The goodness in your heart

That brought

Your loving boy such bliss

But when you left

I was not ready

To assume the part

The space you left

Too big to fill

By my devoted, lonely, shattered heart
