Six months and 24 days,
You would’ve been twenty seven,
The last six months has been a haze,
Since you’ve been gone to heaven.
Late nights in my living room,
Just talking the nights away,
Never leaving a subject unturned,
Never running out of things to say.
Many mornings the sun would rise,
And we would never see its rays,
Wrapped up in each others stories,
Never dulling thru the days.
Though we hated for the time to come,
I’d walk you to the door,
It was so hard to say goodbye,
It was there we would talk an hour more.
Eventually you would have to leave,
I’d pull the blankets back on my bed,
I’d lay there thinking of the day past,
And all that you had said.
I’d drift off to dream each time,
With a feeling of peace in my heart,
Never would that feeling have been there,
If I thought that we would ever part.
Sometimes I sit on that couch,
Take a deep breath and close my eyes,
I think back to when you were alive,
And I pray that you hear my cries.
It really hasnt been that long,
You were no more than a few feet from me,
No matter how much I wish you were still there,
Its something my eyes will never see.
My heart has tried so many times,
To relive back where and when,
And each time my heart just crumbles,
Realizing I’ll never see you here again.
Late nights under the stars,
I gaze off into the sky,
No answer will ever be good enough,
But I still keep asking why.
Many mornings as the sun rises,
The rays shing thru the window,
I dry my tears from the darkness,
And wish it wasn’t so.
Though I know that time won’t change this,
I still keep looking for you at the door,
My heart will never be able to say tgoodbye,
You left me always longing for more.
I know it must’ve been your time to leave,
But when I pull the covers back on my bed,
I’ll never rest with that same ease,
Thoughts of you always running thru my head.
I try to drift off and dream of you,
Hoping to soothe this ache in my heart,
Its just not the same without you here,
My hearts been broken and you took a part.
I pray that I’ll see you again,
I pray you think of m too,
But no prayer could ever ease the pain,
Of losing a man like you.
Tho it feels nothing will numb the wounds,
Tho it feels this hurt will never heal,
As long as i have my memories of you,
I will find a way to deal.
Its always been hard to say goodbye,
It just something that i can never do,
So I’m holding tight to our time,
Making it thru John, But forever missing you!
