IN MY LIFE


IN MY LIFE

S.JENSEN (c)2017

I WOKE UP EARLY

ONE MORNING

TO A PHONE

RINGING...

HI ITS ME

I JUST WATCHED

MY FATHER

PASS AWAY

WANTED YOU

TO KNOW

I LOVED YOU

I WANT TO BE

THERE WITH YOU

"COME BE IN MY LIFE"

OK IN THREE DAYS

I GET THE CAR

I'LL DRIVE IT UP

TO BE THERE IN THREE

DAYS

CALL ENDS

WITH US BOTH

SAYING AT SAME TIME

I LOVE YOU

THREE DAYS GO BY

SOMETHING DOESN'T

FEEL RIGHT

CALLED ON THE PHONE

A ZILLION MILLION

MESSAGES

NO ANSWERS

FROM

NO ONE

CRIED AND CRIED

SITTING ON THE EDGE

OF MY BED

I WATCH MY

HALLOWEEN PLASTIC

SKULL FLY OFF

THE BOOKCASE

I SCREAM AT IT

NO PLEASE SAY NO

TELL ME SHE DIDNT DO THIS

I CALL A FRIEND

SAYING CAN YOU

PLEASE FIND OUT

NO ONE WILL TELL ME

IN THE MAIL

TWO DAYS LATER

I GET A BROWN

ENVELOPE

I TAKE IT INSIDE

SIT DOWN

SEE WHO ITS FROM

BEFORE I OPEN IT

I KNOW

I SO KNOW

SIGH! SWALLOW HARD

I OPEN IT

I PULL THE PAPERS OUT

HER LETTER SAYS

I AM SO SORRY

I THOUGHT YOU WOULD

WANT THESE...

FIRST PAPER

IS OBITUARY

OF HER FATHER

SECOND PAPER

IS OBITUARY

OF HER

I JUST STARE

AT THAT

PIECE OF PAPER

I GO OVER IN

MY HEAD

THE LAST WORDS

EVER SPOKEN

IT HITS ME

IN BEGINNING

OF CONVERSATION

SHE SAID

" I LOVED YOU "

OH ...

"I WILL BE OK"

I AM LEFT NUMB

IT STAYS WITH ME

FOREVER IN MY

MIND

ON THE SAME DAY

AS MY SISTERS

DEATH

FIVE YEARS LATER

ON THE SAME TIME

SHE TOOK HER LIFE

THE HURT

LASTED FOR SO LONG

I SAID FOR THE

LONGEST TIME

WHY?

WHY?

WHY?

IT LEFT A SHELL

I WANTED TO GIVE UP

I SAID NEVER AGAIN

NEVER ANOTHER

A YEAR LATER

MY KID SAID MOM

LISTEN TO THIS

ITS WONDERFUL

MUSIC

I HEARD THE SONG

AND IN MY LIFE

ITS NEVER

EVER THE SAME

CHANGED EVERYTHING

IN THE BLINK OF

AN EYE

GAVE ME HOPE

TO FIGHT TO LIVE

HURT FADES AWAY

AS I LEFT ALL I AM

TO FIND

WHO I AM

THIS HOLE IN MY

HEART

SITS THERE

IN MY LIFE

MY FOREVER FRIEND

LOST IN TIME

I LIVE AGAIN...

FOR THIS STORY

IS SO NOT OVER

YET!

(SOMEWHERE

IN MY LIFE!!!)
