Pain

Can you lose something that you never had?
Mourn someone who never was?
Pain in my heart says I can
Feel the crushing jaws though
Gnawing at my heart and confidence.

Did you really happen?
Or were you just a dream?
Evidence like a mountain
Makes me want to scream,
Of my silent, secret pain.

I wish it wasn’t true,
That you weren’t a fantasy,
And one day I would see you,
But I see my hope flee,
Leaving only despair and pain.

Help me dear Father,
Comfort in my anguish,
There is no one else,
Your arms I cherish and seek,
Wrapped around me as I mourn.
