Without You

For 12 years, 

You made me laugh

For 12 years,

You gave me advice

For 12 years,

You kept our family together

Now this year, a new year, 2017

You're not here

You're not here

To tell me how to make things right with her

You're not here 

For me to play with

You're not here

To tell me to forgive the people that did me wrong

Without you here,

Who do I play cards with?

How do I forgive? 

How do I look at your picture and 

Not let a tear crawl down my cheeks

How do I go through a whole new year without you?

Nothing feels the same without you

Without you nothing feels right

This poem is about: 
My family
