Jason (one more day)

by Jackie
(Owen Sound Ontario Canada)

At first I felt nothing
It didn't even feel real
I drifted from day to day
The pain I couldn't feel

As the time has moved along
Reality has come
Oh how I miss the days
When all I felt was numb

For now I cry most every day
And now I am so blue
I truly wish that I could spend
Another day with you

Although there was nothing left unsaid
And regrets I have none
I want to memorize all that's you
Before our time is done

So let me have one more chance
To make this our goodbye
Perhaps then I can move along
And smile while I cry

I met Jason before he was two years old, he attended the daycare where I was his preschool resource teacher. When he gradutated daycare, I remained friends with Jason and his mother spending time together almost every day. One morning when we went to his room to get him out of bed he was gone. age 33 years old

Watching you slip beneath the surface
Connected to nothing, my voice quivers
Crying out to you
Lost, shattered, hollow soul.

The skies are dark and colourless
My future, an empty abyss,
Adrift in an endless storm
Of solitude.

Swept from this world,
You left me in an instant
To survive the unknown
Without purpose or meaning

A fate far worse than death
Drowning in the time that surrounds me
Days and nights
Without you.
