In loving memory of Michael Knight…
How can it look the same, this world that seems to drone?
Why does my heart not explain, why is it I feel, so alone?
One minute you’re there, and the next, you are gone
Life is now harder to bear, how will we… I, go on?
They say you’re in a better place, I am filled with unrest
My heart now has an empty space, heavy, inside my chest
We will meet again, my son, when the world has let me go
Until that time, I remain here, saddened, and missing you so
I wrote this after reading of the death of a child. Our dear blog friend, Derrick Knight, lost his eldest son, Michael. It was sudden, unexpected. May Michael rest in peace and may God watch over Derrick, Jackie and the family.
