Loss Poem

I wrote this poem on the day of my brothers funeral because the whole week I haven't cried because I have to be strong for my family, though its hurting me I know he is proud of me

Strong

© Kelvin Jernigan
I have to be strong not for me
But for everyone else
I want to cry I want to scream
But no one can see my hollow tears
I keep you near to keep me sane
But the thought of you makes me sad
I want to hide and cry alone
But you are here and it keeps me real
I know you've left this solid ground
But in my heart you still live
You've kept me together for so long
So I will stay strong for everyone else
