5th January; Be gone
Two dates to dread,
Two poems to write
Two loved ones too missed
In a world that will never be right.
Too many memories lost
Too far away to remain.
Numbers that will only grow
Dates and years
Unversaries that should never be known.
Another heinous day of sadness and sorrow
That steals my happiness today and tomorrow.
Oh day of pain
Sheer shock untamed
Please leave my heart, just let me be
Let tomorrow come: let the grief be done
