Poetry By Ken in Rainbow Colors





I stepped into darkness
Expecting my happiness
But he was not at home,
Happiness was gone.

I turned on the light to see
Only emptiness before me,
Everything owned was gone
And I wept alone.

Sorrow overcame my heart
As my life broke apart,
I couldn’t understand why
And I could only cry.

My love is gone and I‘m alone
To live confused on my own,
If only he’d left a note of goodbye
Perhaps I’d know why I cry.

But I’ll never understand I know,
I’ll never know why he had to go,
Somehow I’ll find a way to go on
But how? When my life has gone.

For days I waited by the phone,
For weeks I cried at night alone,
I prayed for him to come home
But after months he’s still gone.

I’ve cried enough to fill oceans
From heartsick emotions,
I’ve waited while the tears pour
Listening for his key in the door.

He’s still gone but what can I do?
I know it’s over, love is through,
He is forever gone and I am here,
Filing an ocean with every tear.
