Those Who Are Left Behind

By TJB Cameron

Time marches forward, stopping for no one
Every second that passes echoes the splinters in our hearts
We put on a brave face and play this game called life


Yet no matter how much we try we do not win
Our pain and loss forever scarred upon our souls
Every moment of joy is made bittersweet by your absences


We struggle through the remainder of life
Holding onto our memories that are all we have
Determined never to forget our loved ones.
