When joy and sadness intertwine,
A pain eternal, a love divine.
The memory of those you loved
And the thought of them looking from above.
This disappointment that you feel,
Knowing that you can never reveal
To them, once more, how much they meant,
How strongly on them you often leant.
What you wouldn’t give for one last touch, a hug maybe,
A hand to hold, a smile to see.
Just once more,
And then again,
Just to try and reverse the pain.
