In memory of my grandfather, Warren (9/10/1934-7/24/2019), I present this poem.
When love is lost to the void, We’re told false truths to ease Into a life without them with us.
“They’re in a better place now.” “They’re no longer in pain.” But what about the rest of us? We’re now in a worse place! The pain has grown exponentially!
We try to see the point of those Making an attempt to comfort, But it gets blurred by the tears That fall from our grieving eyes.
When part of our lives is forever lost, How can we feel anything but emptiness Where they just were moments ago? How can it be all okay again? Do you really expect us to just move on With our lives like they never even existed?
Let me have my memories at least of the good times. Let me look back in fondness at who I remember. Don’t quote logic to my face right now. Or I’ll shove your pathos back into your face. It’s not what I need or want right now.
I just want them back.
