How can I express my remorse?
By leaving a wilted flower bouquet?
By paying my respects on this cold, rainy day?

How can I express what I feel?
An emptiness breathed out through my insides
A space between now and what's been...

How can I take it back in one plee...?
I can't
And I think
Why couldn't I open my eyes to the truth and see?

She's not really dead
I'll keep telling myself
She's not really gone, forever away

In reality, if I could only make her SURVIVE!
I wished to myslef, on her grave
She's not dead,
If only I could imagine her alive

How can I express how I'm sorry
That I ever let that little girl go
That played in my head
In her flower garden of Eden
And who's laughter I could hear miles away

How can I express my remorse
For the child that lives inside of me
The day that she went
I gathered her some wild flowers
That wilted in the hot sun of the day spent

I wished she'd come back
But I guess I scared her away
That little girl finaly fled
And now a big part of me
Is filled with emptiness
A big part of me
Is left dead

This has brought tears to my eyes (someone pass me a tissue).  This is beautifully written I must say.  Great job!

So very sad, Joy.

Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Sad poem but good. Makes us realize how lucky we are to be alive...I know you've probably gotten enough hugs by now...but here's mine anyway {{{{{HUUUUUUUGGGGGG}}}}
