a Poem by Raquel Swann

Pain without tears

Is like

Trees without leaves

Flowers without pedals

Birds without wings

Daylight without sun

Darkness with no moon

The world without you

It just doesn’t seem right

I’m left to face these days

Wondering if you’d

Check in on me

From time to time

To see if I’m alright

I won’t be, I can’t be

In the end of my days

Will you be there by my bedside

To take me with you

Sailing the blue oceans

For the rest of time.
