A GATE

When
You were alive
Her world
Was safer
A better place.

Although
She talks
To you
As if
You were still here.

Since
You
Have passed away
Her world
Has changed.

She
Hears
You
Talking
To her.

She
Hears
You
Singing
To her.

She
Feels
You
Holding her
When she cries.

Even
Though
She
Misses
You.

She
Knows
The only thing
Separating you
Is a gate.

THE DAY AFTER NEVER

When
Will I stop
Thinking of you?
The day after never.

When
Will I stop
Forgetting you?
The day after never.

When
Will I stop
Crying for you?
The day after never.

When
Will I stop
Missing you?
The day after never.

When
Will I stop
Loving you?
The day after never.
