A Piece of my Heart

A piece of my heart died today
As I saw a yellow leaf fall from a tree
Reminding me of that day so grey
When Death took my friend from me.

A piece of my heart has a hole
Where once your friendship was there
Now it’s gone leaving a crushed soul
With a terrible rip, a cruel tear.

A piece of my heart cannot grow,
White numbness replaces the red;
“Time heals” they say, but it’s so slow,
Mental wounds befuddle the head.

A piece of my heart bears each Name
Of ones still fondly missed;
Rich memories continue to remain,
Cherished photos are often kissed…
