I lived with mental illness in my family

I only have a picture now

A frozen piece of time

To remind me how it was

When you were here and fine.

 

I see your smiling eyes

Each morning when I wake.

I talk to you and place a kiss

Upon your handsome face.

 

How much I miss your being here

I really cannot say.

The ache is deep inside my heart

And never goes away.
