They were Beautiful

They were Beautiful

A Poem by The Creation

I miss them... those that I loved. They're gone now but I guess that's ok. We've all lost a person or more. But I guess if we remember them it's ok right?


I’ve yet to remember when last I slept,

In this life… these seasons,

I tend to forget,

I’ve grown to wonder,

I’ve failed to know,

I’ll try to remember,

If it were ever so,

I know not now,

Is my life my own?

Have I gotten younger,

The more I’ve grown,

The more I wept for you,

The more you faded,

I’d give my last breath,

For you… but these words are belated.


I can see you now,

Beneath fields of colorful blooms,

Your bed seems so earthy,

Your pillow so grey,

I’ve gotten older,

Yet your covers unchanged,

As green as I remembered,

On the day I saw you last,

You looked so peaceful,

You smiled though we cried,

We could not let go of the past,

And while you laid there,

In your eternal sleep,

When my eyes could no longer weep,

I saw you for the first time,

Your face so frail and graceful,

I swear in that moment,

You were beautiful.
