No Tears

April 5, 2008
By Tyrone Alcorn, Boston, MA

You left me
With no guide to steer
You left.
My life stayed in parked
No force strong enough to put it in gear
No return.
Your candlelight has blown out
So why does my heart burn
Your memories hold heavy like lead
But I have no tears to shed

Much you said in a lifetime
Twice you’ve felt
But time has reduced you to half
Because of your numbness we share no laughs
No words
Speak not cause I can hear you
Though I never heard since a kid
The words "I love you" I beg to hear again.
Thou I never will
Too late, no time, no warning, too ill
I accept your dead
But I have no tears to shed.

(Dedicated to my grandfather)
