On Losing Someone – 2

People, people, everywhere
They smile, you smile… it’s a mask you wear
Underneath there’s loneliness and pain
The thought of someone you might never see again

It’s been so long… months, maybe years
You’ve quite run out of your stock of tears
Besides, how long can you mourn
For someone who’s not dead – just gone

You hope he’s happy… but then, again
You hope he feels that sharp stab of pain
Something that reminds him of you
And everything he’s put you through

Of course you can smile, of course you’re strong
After all, you did no wrong
And who’s to know, since that fateful day
The song in your heart quite went away

But, how can it be? Can it be true?
That he didn’t stop to think of you?
Or maybe, it’s plain to see,
Some things were just not meant to be.

One day, some day, if fate ordains,
You’ll run into him again
And then, perhaps, maybe, you’ll know
What made him want to leave and go

Until then, you wait, you hope,
You know you’ll get along, you’ll cope.
There’s only one thing you could ask:
The strength to keep on wearing that mask

    Goodness, whose son got ‘lost’?

    Siri: Yes, all is ok, don’t worry. Just a confluence of circumstances, stuff that I don’t want to write about here, but which I wanted to express anyway. You know poetry is not my thing, but this just came to me on its own and I had to capture the words and get them out of me. That helped.

    I can understand about the poetry- I’m not much of a poet (at all, to be honest) but at times it really helps to express feelings this way.
