Poem: Gone

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Goodbye" by 3 Doors Down

poem-gone

"Gone"

She sits gazing out the window
with tears streaming down her cheeks,
thinking of the last moment
she shared with him.

She feels a deep sadness,
knowing she will no longer
gaze into his eyes,
a deep emptiness
spirals inside her bones
with a loss of words.

Wishing she had one more moment
to hold him close,
to see that sparkle in his eyes
one more time,
before she must say
Goodbye.

"Gone Too Soon" by Simple Plan
