The Sunshine of my World
I hopelessly sit here, like many years ago
All the candles are lit, no "Sweet Angel" to blow
I look up to the heavens, and shout out "WHY??"
The silence is deafening, they don't hear my cries
Just one last quick puff, that's all I ask for
Do I ask for too much, as I slump to the floor?
Yet again with dismay, I feel no breeze
No wind on my face, just me on my knees
I fight all the demons, that lurk inside me
I would let them all out, but I can't find the key
This battle is fought, every day of my life
I hope I'm winning, but it's not a fair fight.....
I can throw what I long for, right out the door
The bottom line is, she's with us no more.....
She lives in my heart, so we're never apart
She's with me today, as it's pumping away
Yet my soul is still searching, for the love that I lost
So hard to find peace, at whatever the cost
Then I look to the heavens, and I desperately cry
"Please, just one more puff," no need to ask why .........
I Love You Carol, you will always be my girl
The one that I long for, the sunshine of my world
Happy 50th Birthday Carol Ann..... February 15, 2015
