Always With You
I’m always with you.
I’m with you every time you enter the cemetery gates.
You can’t see me.
You have no idea I’m here.
I still need to be with you.
To try and protect you.
I follow behind to stay undetected.
You stop at my site.
I watch as the tears fall from your beautiful bright eyes.
I want to reach out and soothe you.
You look at the glass with my name intricately etched.
I can’t hear what you whisper.
I guess I am not suppose to.
My time is spent I shouldn’t be here.
I can’t watch too long.
It makes me too sad for how confused you are.
Sad that you think I am gone when in truth I have never left.
