You're No More There

Every morning,I still open my eyes to greet the day,I still hear the birds singing away,I still feel the wind blowing astray,But still you’re no more there.Every noon time,I still eat my lunch to fill my hunger,I still walk to reach wherever,I still talk to whomever,But still you’re no more there.Every evening,I still drive home and take my shower,I still stroll by to buy some flowers,I still cook my own dinner,But still you’re no more there.Every nite,I... continue reading

Theirbest friends lived barely a wave away.I can see them now, Dad in trousers, tee shirt and a hat & Mom in a house dress, lawn mower... continue reading

About the boy I liked, the things I went through at school & church, my personal thoughts of my friends & family.I always lock it up in my drawer in the bedroom.
