Gone and nowhere to be found

A Poem About the Loss of Those You Love

You think of all they’ll never do.
Of all they’ll never do again.
You wish that you could turn back time
and freeze a frame to immortalize.
This is all a heist. They have been robbed
of life and you of them.
And cut off are their unused tomorrows.
There’s only you, your tears, your sorrows.
As you realize anew, you wish you could forget
but also cry when their image begins to be erased.
And replaced with less important faces and names.
You wish then that they will never fade,
suspended like a fish in ice.
Frozen forever in your memories.
And there is nothing you would not give
to have them live, live, live again.
