Would you mind

Darling would you mind

staying a little longer

this lonely home

stripped of you

holds your memories close

those photographs on the wall

those trinkets we bought together

those little knicks knacks

darling,you took them all

could you not have stayed

or told me while you left

coz coming back to an empty home

killed me nearly it did

for days of weeping copious tears

did not ever cure me

darling wife you chose to leave

me alone, knowing well my need for you

I know I confess

my share of guilt

wish you had shouted

yelled it out

loud and clear

perhaps my dumb head would have got it

years later love

it still hurts where you left

slowing my steps

I struggle to find trust

Bless your soul

and heal mine
