I wonder silently                                                                                                                               

If you’re looking down

Then suddenly  

I get to feeling lonely

So, I read- your- words

Only to get emotional again

And my eyes fill with tears

Cause I know, there’s no going back 

Once you’re crossed over

Oh, what a difference a visit could make

Yet, I must believe there’s some way

We will reconnect again after here

As “if only” echoes in my heartbeats  

As my mind clings to cherished memories

Of our precious times laughing- aloud

No more chances to keep promises

No more moments- to be stolen

As I subsist in the echoing…aftermath
