Denial

You passed on, leaving me behind,

Leaving everything behind.

I still refuse to accept it,

To accept that I won’t ever feel your warm embrace,

To accept that I won’t ever see your smile,

To accept that I won’t ever hear your melodious voice.

I refuse to accept it.

So far, I have been trying to let go,

But well

I can’t,

It feels wrong.

It’s painful, and that’s a pain I can’t handle.

So I chose to hold on a little longer,

To hold on a little tighter,

But it’s also hurting me,

Trying to let go and trying not to let go

Brings the same pain.
