That hole in my heart (where you use to be)


Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

There's a hole in my chest where my heart use to be 

It was never the same the day you left me 

It's a void to a world where happiness goes 

It by passes my heart, my body and soul 


Nothing I feel, nothing gets through 

It use to be the place where my spirit flew 

Blackness it leaks, spits fire and ice 

My emotions controlled like the roll of a dice 


I smile and I nod and agree with the world 

Inside my sanity is becoming uncurled 

A flash of your face, a glimpse of your eyes 

Slowly and surely another part of me dies 


A rub of my shoulder and a promise of life 

People's words, they mean well but they twist like a knife 

How can they know that, can they not see 

That you are not here and without you I ain't me 


This hole I can't fill it's a bottomless pit 

Although I try. . . Yes I try with love, sweat and grit 

It will never be whole for you'll never be here 

But I hope to repair it before all life disappears


For I know you are watching and the pain you feel too 

And I know that it hurts you to see me so blue 

I know that you want me to always go on 

I know that you want me to always stay strong 


To the day that our souls meet once again 

I can hold you and kiss you my very best friend 

Till that day I promise to patch up that hole 

Take comfort in knowing your there where I go

    Wow! Excellent write.

    • Jooles

      Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š


      Thanks JOOLES for a lovely tribute to a very every dear loved one ! In a sense it made me sad too as I thought of all my near and dear ones who have been called home to Glory. As each one passes the hole in our grieving heart gets bigger. There are two compensations for me ~ ONE ~ I know I will meet them all again in the SWEET SWEET BYE-&-BYE and ~ TWO ~ the Good Lord keeps adding new babies to our Extended Family to compensate. Thanks for caring & sharing ~ HUGS BRIAN

            You're welcome. It's amazing how people like us can put ourselves in different pairs of shoes when we want to write from different point of views.
