Here I stand

by Stephenie Dowding Jones
(Hertfordshire )

In this life full of pain,
I stand out here in the pouring rain.
The water runs down my shattered face
till only tears do take its place.
It's all quiet now,
no sounds to hear except my heart
which beats with fear.
The fear of loss and missed goodbyes
as these tears do sting my eyes.
I miss you with every beat of my heart
and I'm sorry our ways they had to part
but I think of your smile everyday
hope your hand will guide my way.
