The Day After (1st poem )

The plans have all been done

The verses were read through

Everyone had a say of exactly

What they thought of you

The cars and the people

All that came that day

To show the love they had for you

In a very special way

Now it is all over and everyone

has gone back home

Im stuck here in my loneliness

Sad and crying and all alone

They say that time is a healer

I hope what they say is true

Because right at this minute dell

I can't stand doing this without you

How strong and great I'm doing

That's all I seem to hear

They just can't seem to see

All the pain and hurt in here

I just go on day by day by day

And listen quietly at all they have to say

And then I smile so sweetly and thoughts are in my head

Didn't you really listen to what ive just said

So off to bed early

That's what I seem to do

But we know the real reason is

So I can dream of you

We are back in each others arms

As that's what we loved to do

Just a shame I have to wake up

And its always without you xx
