Gone

Gone

A Poem by Ashley Armstrong
"

A poem about the day my Grandpa died

"
My heart skipped a beat
When I heard you were gone
The hot summer day suddenly felt cold
I didn't believe it at first
I thought it was a lie
But, there were tears in those eyes
The tears of a painful truth
The bitter taste of regret filled my mouth
As I realized I never said goodbye
All my tears could have filled an ocean
But tears wont bring you back again
I miss you so much
I love you even more
And since I didn't say this before
I'll tell you now
"I love you.
Have a great day.
Goodbye."

A sad tale of a bitter end, and chances that have slipped through our hands. I love the ending, how you tied it up so gently, "I love you. Have a great day. Goodbye." I can imagine the narrator crying with a smile as he/she looks into the distance while saying these short, yet heavy and sorrowful words. Enjoyed.
