What have I done

By Roland E. Williams

My heart can bear no more

It is a dying heart

It is falling apart

Cell for microscopic cell

Hurt for lasting hurt

Pain for unbearable pain

Tear for heartfelt tear

What have I done

How can I forget this

How can I forgive this

When have you last seen their joyful smiles?

When have you last heard their beating hearts?

When have you last felt their gentle touches?

When have you last gazed at their gleaming eyes?

When have you last learned what they have learned?

When have you last known what it is like to have them around?
