Without You

Why is the world still spinning?
Doesn't it know you're gone?
It's an end or some kind of beginning
But for everyone else life goes on

How does the grass keep on growing?
Why is the sky still blue?
How can people go on not knowing?
Why isn't the world missing you?

How is there still air we're breathing?
How is water still in the sea?
How has everything lost all its meaning?
Why does nobody feel it but me?

How can weeks and months still pass?
When you're not here anymore?
Why does time keep on going so fast?
What is time even passing by for?

Why haven't we all disappeared?
There can't be a reason to stay
Why would anyone want to be here
In a place that would take you away?

You know, I still sit around daily feeling crestfallen and betrayed by God for having taken my very best friend away from me. This above poem describes the way I am feeling now. I lost my best friend last year in August due to electric shock and to this very day, I never learned to accept that she is gone. Death be not proud!
