I Cried Last Night I cried last night, and that’s okay.
A river‘ll burst it’s banks someday.
Either filling up slowly drip after drop,
Or flash-floods thunder over the top;
Tears spill silent, snaking their way,
Or torrents pour, but that’s okay.
I cried last night, yet time has passed.
Am I not ‘over it’ at last?
That precious seed never blossomed to flower,
The delicate bud that will always be ours.
It’s absence left a hole so vast,
The pain still there, yet time has passed.
I cried last night, because you’ll never be.
So many things I’ll never see,
Watching you giggle,and grow so tall,
I’ll miss your milestones,one and all.
A stark reminder it is to me,
You’ll always be ours, but you’ll never ‘be.’
I cried last night, nothing fills the hollow.
You won’t be replaced, no matter what follows.
My beautiful jigsaw piece was stole,
And without it I can never be whole.
Life does keep going, I don’t wallow,
But that piece of my world will always be hollow.
I cried last night, please understand,
If I feel I’m sinking in the sand.
Others will busy my hands, it’s true,
But my arms will ALWAYS ache for YOU.
My tears for you overflow somedays,
So I cried last night and that’s okay.
