Called Home

by Lakesha Jenkins

Pretending to hear things you never had the chance to say
I wonder at times if you look down on me
Removing obstacles from my path I have yet to see
You always told me that even death could not remove the seal
That binds our souls together and make you feel what I feel
Taken in an instant so far away
What I would not have given if you could only have stayed
The eyes they say are the window to the soul
I wonder if anyone notices in mine the deep gaping hole
That used to be us
When we were young and new
Now dark and empty
So sad and blue
You were my strength in times that I was weak
My soul inspiration now Iím unable to seek
Your hands, your touch
Your laughter; all gone
Left in this world so complete and utterly alone
Give it time everyone says
All wounds tend to heal
What the hell do they know!
They donít know how it feels
You were part of me
The biggest part of me now gone
How do I recover the half of me
That died the day GOD called you home?
