An Elegy: Dead and Gone

I know that you are now gone,

Though I don’t want it to be true.

Because your presence I still long,

Or just one chance to hold you.

I imagine what you would’ve been,

And how our days would be.

But you are indeed gone with the wind

God needed you for his own keep.

So I sit here, with paper and pen,

Trying to keep your memory alive.

But my heart cannot and will not mend.

Oh why, why did you have to die?

But that is just the rule of life, right?

People die and loved ones move on.

So here is my heartbreaking goodbye,

Rest in Peace to my love gone.
