After taking your last breath

I felt overwhelmed by reality

My world darkened in silence                                       

My tears spoke what I couldn’t

How small and orphaned I feel

As if I’m mistakenly left behind

In but a foreign land of strangers

My shallowed breathes erupted

By fear, denial, guilt, and sorrow

I’m broken, wounded, bleeding

From every fiber of my existence             

I’ve unwantonly been changed         

Most significant person to me

Taken from my future’s… fingers
