Without Him

August 2, 2008
By Cliona Roberts, Katonah, NY

The tears fall
As we wait
For some
Light to be shed
Upon this tragedy

Santa comes softly
As we all lay awake
Our souls so lonely

Everyday is a struggle
Why don’t you notice us?
We’re still here
But you just look away

The water, so smooth,
So calm
Causes so much pain

The rain sings a soft lullaby
to the lost ones
Darkness falls,
we face the nightmares
just beyond our eyes

Seconds count down to zero,
a new year begins.
We take another step
and prepare for a year
without him.
