If Only You Could Have Stayed

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

If Only You Could Have Stayed

Constantly thinking,

never to be the same.

The tears fall quickly

just hearing your name.

Silence is golden,

yet not anymore.

Silence brings thoughts

I just can’t ignore.

The nights are sleepless,

dreams out of reach.

Crying in my pillow

to you I beseech.

Surrounded by family,

I still feel alone.

My heart is so empty.

This pain I must own.

I wish I could hug you

and just see your face.

But now I have memories

to stand in your place.

Gone but not forgotten,

that’s what they say.

Of course that is true…

but if only you could have stayed.
