He’s Gone

Your eyes tell a story
No words could explain
The pain
The heartache
The loss
The emptiness
All come forward
Without a word spoken
Your expression speaks volumes
And I could never begin
To ease your discomfort
With mere words of love and hope
All I can offer you
Is a shoulder to cry on
Two arms to hold you
And patience as you heal
