They Say Time Heals The Pain
(In Loving Memory Poems)

I thought that time was healing
from the hurt you left behind ..
That empty space could be filled
my arms, my heart and mind.

My body looks the same
as it did when you were here ..
But the emptiness is growing
each and every year.

I thought that time would heal
this sad, unbearable pain ..
That soon my tears would fade
and I would learn to live again.

All the times I am smiling
are just me pretending ..
Hurt flows through my heart and soul
this pain is never ending.

I thought that time would heal
but nothings changed, it seems ..
My aching arms that miss you
aren’t satisfied with dreams.

So here I am, in pain again
and healing stands alone ..
As I will forever weep,
for you cannot come home.
