No More Today

I’m torn apart

With a broken heart,

Just a crumpled heap

Who cannot sleep,

For sleep brings fear

And a trickling tear,

As images flash

Of that horrific crash.

 

A day will dawn

Yet still I mourn,

And time stands still

It always will.

Because here I’ll wait

My loss too great

To carry through

A life without you.

 

Each day I try

Each day I cry,

Each day I miss

Your goodnight kiss.

An empty room

You left too soon,

Cruelly snatched away

No more today.

 

How do I live

When I can’t give

My lost little boy

A life to enjoy.

I let him go

That I’ll always know,

For what was right

Was to hold him tight.

 

I’m sorry, Ned, I love you so

I wish and wish I’d never let go.

For now you’re gone

Your life is done,

And I’m torn apart

With a broken heart,

Just a crumpled heap

Waiting for eternal sleep.
