You'll Never Fade

You'll Never Fade

A Poem by VoodooWebs

If only you’d have stayed

And made me never fear

I’d’ve shown you night and day

And made you hold me dear

You’d love yourself, keep me safe

 And want to be with me


Sometimes I sit

On the porch or by the phone

In anticipation, just a bit

Of when you might be home

The date should have been written

So that I could’ve known


But you’re only gone

And the tears, they are real

They burn for the one

Who was my only shield

The memories are still spun

Though my heart will never heal


How do I tell you

That I miss you so much

That this is harder than we all knew

And I feel there’s no crutch

I fear there’s nothing I can do

With you out of touch


Even through this ache

That won’t pass, never will

And despite all the quakes

That wreaked with your pills

Just maybe I’ll make

It over the bumps and hills

Author's Note

Despite the thoughts that this is for a boyfriend or something, I made this for my mom. Obviously, she past away recently.

Sad. Cloud's review pretty much sums up mine. Thank you for sharing, I hope things get better.

Such a delicate poem of heartfelt sorrow...and a tragic story written carefully with ink like tears. I apologize greatly for your horrible loss. This was an absolutely beautiful piece. I enjoyed it very much as it tugged on my heart. Prayers are coming your way. Excellent work...

Damn... It seems almost profane to say anything in the face of such grief made bare; melancholy eloquently expressed. There are details that stand out for me and if my perceptions are correct regarding them, then any words that I choose will fall short. I'm convinced that they fall very short of the mark for what I would convey. Surely, any who catch those telling bits, will feel the compulsion to rip out their heart and feed it to you. Not me.

Where others see fragility, I see resilience. The last stanza bespeaks of an inner strength that most will never know. You've transmitted an awful lot to the reader through rich verse. Thank you...

This poem is so sad and heartfelt and that you wrote it or you mom is so sweet.It flows really well and brings tears to the eyes.I'm sorry about the loss of your mother but in that it brought out an amazing piece of poetry. :)

There is a delicate, fragile frame to this poem, possibly because it came from such an emotional standpoint. It feels like the speaker is a porcelain doll, or something. I don't like rhyming usually in poetry, but here it emphasizes how young the speaker is and makes the premise all the more tragic. I nearly shed a tear at this, which tells me it's as perfect as it can be for what it is trying to tell us as readers.

nicely so sorry for your loss though

I'm so sorry for your loss! I know saying that won't ease the pain, but still, i'm sorry. This was really beautifully written and made me want to cry even before I knew exactly what it was about.
