Heart Break

My soul aches from the pain,

Of loosing you, my father, today.

My day is gloomier than the rain

That decides to forever stay.

My eyes are swollen up from shedding more tears

Than I ever had in recent years.

"Why why?" I shout in anger

Wanting to demand an answer.

That night I sneaked away outside

Upon my noble steed I ride.

On and on,

All night long,

Until my mare grew weary,

From my hot, white fury.

I collapsed right on the grass

Like an old, gross rotten carcass.

My chest heaved in much bitter sorrow

Knowing I shan't see you tomorrow.

A gentle breeze kissed my face,

And my then heart began to race.

I leaned to look inside the pool

And there I saw me, the fool.

My reflection there, and also more

Much more than what I wore.

You were there and then I saw

What made my heart begin to thaw.

Your smile, so happy and gay

Turned my dreary night to day.

I vowed then, to myself

That I will never stuff you up a shelf.

Here, inside me you will stay,

Never to be sent away.
