Since you've been gone

I keep thinking you're coming back.

I waited, day and night

But you never came.

Now...I am so torn...

     Do I keep waiting? Do I continue making plans for us?

     Or do I finally give up?

     And accept the fact that you are gone, never to return?

Either way, it's no easy task.

I guess I'll forever be in limbo.

     One moment, waiting, dying to see you.

     The next, moving on, knowing in my heart

     that I'd never, ever be with you again.

No matter what path i take, one thing I want you to know,

     I love you, and I always will.

About the Author
Pictured here are my Dad, Mr. Virgilio "Ver" V. Layco, Sr. and my youngest sister, Karen Layco Mitchell. Sadly, we lost them on Dec. 2011. Losing them both suddenly, one week apart, was so overwhelming that I needed something to release the pain I am feeling. I started writing my poems to express the sadness I've felt since they passed away. I hope you find some comfort and encouragement in reading them. *** Marizel Layco Beck ***
