The Final Poem

Frank reached into my heart and wrote this.  Powerful and raw capturing the pain of the end.  I don’t have the words to describe how much his words resonate and touch my core.

Thank you!

The stories were all told

Now they all just seem so old

Little pieces of my heart

All broken, but they call it art

All the years I’ve left behind

I will return home and call them mine

When you needed shelter in the night

I burned myself to be your light

When you needed to stay afloat

I drowned myself to be your boat

When you were standing in the midst of storm

I fought the cold to keep you warm

It is more than I can take

No more sacrifices I will make

Now I know what I have to do

This is the final poem for you

We may not be free and young

All our songs now have been sung

When was the last time that we laughed?

When was the last time that we cried?

Can we smile together one last time

Or just walk away with our pride?

When you needed shelter in the night

I burned myself to be your light

When you needed to stay afloat

I drowned myself to be your boat

When you were standing in the midst of storm

I fought the cold to keep you warm

It is more than I can take

No more sacrifices I will make

Now I know what I have to do

This is the final poem for you

I lie down empty on the floor

I’ve never felt so lonely before

I lost so much of my soul

But at least I got my heart back

I am finally out of my shell

Looking to be better than I ever was

Someday I will find myself again

My heart will be whole. There will be no pain

I’ll write letters to my heart

But not a word for you anymore

You and I, we both will dance

You with someone else. And I, with my heart

When you needed shelter in the night

I burned myself to be your light

When you needed to stay afloat

I drowned myself to be your boat

When you were standing in the midst of storm

I fought the cold to keep you warm

It is more than I can take

No more sacrifices I will make

Now I know what I have to do

This is the final poem for you
