With Time

With Time

“The pain will go away, with time”
“It won’t be so bad, after awhile”
So say these friends of mine…
But they have never lost a child….

The pain will never go away
Yet it softens some, with time
My child is gone, it hurts to say
I’ll never be “just fine”

Tho another year has come and gone
I hold your memories in my heart
They dance there, as if to song
From that I know I’ll never part

As time goes by year after year
And the pain begins to soften
I know that it’s alright to tear
And live with my memories, more often…..
