Gone but never forgotten

by Beauty In The Brokeness

Gone but not forgotten,
passed on but still alive through us,
you left this world so suddenly
and left the ones that love you still
so completely lost and alone.

You left an empty space with your leaving
filled only with pain and sadness
and a touch of anger too,
it feels so unfair that you were taken
and that we were separated so soon.

Your still missed everyday
more then words can say,
if tears could build a path
then we'd be together once again.

A year today that you've been gone
and it's so hard to keep going on,
I wish that we'd had just one more day
but then one day more would've never be enough.

The hollow, empty space within my heart
is full of such pain today,
I'd give anything to go back in time
and change that one fateful day
and have you with me once more.

The only comfort that I can find
is knowing that your still with me,
your the guardian angel that looks out for me
and I know that your in a better place
but that doesn't mean that I don't still miss you.

I see your smile when I'm alone
and hear your laugh all of a sudden,
I'm doing my best to be strong and go on
the way I know you'd want me to
but it's so hard without you here.

Rest in peace today and always,
know that your still loved
more then words can say
and missed so much everyday,
you'll always live on in our hearts.

*This is dedicated to the father of a man thats very dear to me. I wish I could've known you.*

It was sad but it wasn't depressing and it was sort of a lighter touch than im used too, so it was refreshing. 4/5 for the structure tho
