When You Fall


I watched the sun and moon rise and set.

contemplating memories that I can not forget

They’re etched in my heart’s deepest place

the lines sketched on this saddened face.

Love is supposed to never end,

a belief,  I once held dear, now I must suspend.

There’s little comfort, little relief,

bittersweet and brief.

No one wants to admit defeat,

we keep on pushing to succeed;

it’s a deep rooted need.

Not letting go,  you can’t help it, you keep grasping at air,

there’s no hand reaching back anywhere.

You’ve  been out of my life and long gone,

yet your memory manages to persist.

To the contrary, I insist,

they have it wrong;

when they say time will heal,

it will heal all.

I know how I feel,

I know how it hurts, when you fall.
