- by Glycerinne Tennan 59I loved your bright blue eyes,
Now I cannot see them.
I loved your beautiful voice,
Now it's cracked and hoarse.
I loved the warmth you radiated,
Now I feel your warmth drain away.
I loved the energetic spirit.
Now, still, you lay
I loved your sincere smile,
Now it is a feeble attempt to say, "I'm fine."
I loved how you said you'd be there forever,
Now I hate these cold machines.
You were the sun in my gloom,
The permanent darkness has taken over now.
You left us all, with help from them,
The spider-like ghosts
That float away in white coats,
Ashamed of their work,
Yet proud that the deed is done.
Sobbing and broken, we stand and watch.
As they switch off the machines,
As they remove the dripping needles,
As they check the heart they know has stopped,
As they tell us all
You're gone forever.
I miss you
- by Courtney Sauve 58I am just eleven,
And already you are gone to heaven.
The smiles, the laughter,
I'll remember forever.
We would spend days in your rocking chair,
With your fingers going through my hair.
When I was just about two,
You gave me my favorite teddy, Nou-Nou.
Now when I lay my head at night,
I pray and wish that you were still by my sight.
I love you with all my heart,
And that will never fall apart.
I love you,
I admire you...
But most of all...
I miss you.
