Why We Need You Back
Music soft as can be
mom sitting there-
wondering what happened to her son?

People pouring
their eyes out-
Praying, hoping he will come back-
broken objects-
how or why-
this happened to us.

Laying there peaceful
like an ocean moving-
slowly back-
and forth.

is the only word that
can escape
our lips.

He is like stone-
that won't move
and you need him to move
parents sitting, staring at what
used to be their son-
but he isn't moving-
or laughing
seeing his family.

What happened that you lay there-
still as a stone.
Broken hearts-
lying on the floor next to you
wanting you to come back-
to us.

The author's comments:
The reason I chose this poem is because writing about Robb eases my pain about his death and even though its been two months it is still really hard not to write about him and when I don't write about him I start to see him everywhere even on people's faces and that scares me.
