Unsaid Things by Don Beukes


I never got the chance to tell you my future

plans as you slipped into the shoes of your

eternal dance,


Only fading memories remain in this earthly

domain you left me in,


Just another farewell in the departure

lounge hell as they announce my

flight with a final echoing knell,


A final forced wave as I disappear

behind that dreaded security

wall enclave,


Too young to realize your final goodbye

as you left mother to silently cry,


Hoping for one more trip to Liberty Bay

to witness dreams float away,


I never got the chance to wish you well

as you left for foreign shores

opening dormant doors,


My memories now only charred scatterings

as I wither away,


Eternally mourning murmurings of

unsaid things.
