 Elsie`s Poetry



Ten long years making one whole decade
All this time yet the pain still doesn`t fade,
It`s as acute today as it was back then
And I have relived it again and again.

This is a milestone which weighs heavy on me
And from the pain of losing you I`ll never be free,
I accept this now as I will always grieve
Just as much now as on the day you did leave.

I wanted Sweep close so I laid him to rest
Here in my garden I thought it was best,
But curse or comfort I can`t make up my mind
For he is so near yet so far from me I find.

When Sweep died he took my heart with him
Gone was my shadow and my life was grim,
But all I can do is mourn for my best friend
My life without my shadow will never end.

For the last ten years I have walked alone
Loneliness and heartache is all I have known,
My constant falling tears have never dried
Oh! How I wish you could walk by my side.


If only my tears could build a stairway
And all my memories make a lane,
There`d be enough for me to walk to heaven
Then I could bring you home again.

      Sweep June 1995 - 30th May 2009
