A Special Treat!

This is a poem I wrote in my spare time. Enjoy!

My friend, my second half!
What shall I do without you?
Now a gaping hole
Fills your space.
Why, oh, why
Were you taken,
but not I?
I was there,
Right beside you.
How you but not I?

A gaping hole
You left behind,
But none of it
Was your fault
How you but not I?

I was in that car,
Turning around the same corner,
As you, when your life was stolen.
How is it that I
Was only injured,
But you never left
That scene alive?
That I recovered,
But you never woke?

A gaping hole
You left behind,
But none of it
Was you fault
How you but not I?

I never saw you again,
Your funeral I missed.
I lay unconscious
As your remains
Entered the grave.
I’m sorry! I’m sorry!
I’m so so sorry
That I missed it all!
When I should have
Been with you,
I didn’t even attend
Your funeral.

A gaping hole
You left behind,
But none of it
Was your fault
How you but not I?

When I finally awoke,
I could only remember you.
I kept asking,
But no one would answer.
I begged my parents
To talk to me.
I remember only too well
Your lifeless body
Next to mine!
Even as the EMTs ran up,
I cried out to you,
Wake up! Please!
I sobbed.
But there was no reply,
No motion.
I begged God
Through my pain and tears
For you.
For you not to leave me
All alone.

A gaping hole
You left behind,
But none of it
Was your fault
How you but not I?

You left me alone
In this world
Of hate, of pain.
I know, I trust you.
You would have taken me
Away from here–
If at all possible!
You were my joy,
Ripped from my heart
Free to the winds,
Leaving me to bleed.

A gaping hole
You left behind,
But none of it
Was your fault
How you but not I?
