One Single Impression – Prompt 171: Endure

Pain –

so grave,

so brutal,

as I walk past

memories of you.

Every stone, every leaf

tells a story of days that were.

With every step comes a tear

and my heart yearns for your presence here, now.

Had I known your time was short in this world

I would have shared some of my years with you.

Why was I never given that chance?

Of what use is this time without you?

At least if there was some hope

of seeing you one more time

I’ll endure it all

with a big smile

and not drown

in any

    That was a lovely poem. Lovely, which seems to be my pet adjective these days, may not be so suited here given the poignant theme but there’s a beauty that is undeniable. 😀
