loved ones

Keep Them With You, When They Are Gone

Write their names on the turbulent waters.
Scribble the letters with blood from your heart.
They're gone and left your soul in tatters, 
With an open wound that will forever smart. 

Look for them where they cannot be found
Never stop searching, do not give up. 
Feel their presence in the sky and on the ground, 
In the earth beneath you and the clouds above. 

See their smiles in the blossoming flowers. 
Hear their voices in a summer breeze. 
Feel their touch under rain showers, 
Each raindrop is their parting kiss.
