 Elsie`s Poetry


<Angel Closes Her Eyes>




You know, life can end at any given time
And when people die young it seems such a crime,
Young or old, they still belong to someone
One minute they are here and the next they`re gone.

How do we cope when our loved one has to leave?
When we are all alone and left to grieve?
It just feels like we have been torn apart
The heartache and loneliness is just the start.

Devastating for those of us left behind
Answers to questions that we can never find,
Feeling empty and lost now we are alone
Gone are the fruits of our labours we have sewn.

They`ll never return no matter how we pray
They`ll just be silent and in their graves lay,
Our love for them still lives on tho` they have died
What separates us from them is the Great Divide.
