Life’s bitter pill

I fall on my knees.
I bow my head into my hands and cry.
I did not wish for you to die.
I make my pleas.

To deafen ears.
You went away.
My worst fears.
You left this day.

I feel a shiver.
Running down my back.
I shudder.
At life’s bitter pill.

The cool breeze whispers words, only I can hear.
I wish for something, anything to deny the truth.
That you are no longer here.
Alas, there is nothing.
