For Those – Poem

For all of those lost,
For those yet to be found,
Just think of the cost,
Not the value of the pound.
Think of the others, mid-search,
As you want for nought else,
Easily able to leave them in the lurch,
As all but an icy heart melts.
Struggling to smile for the day,
When so much is lacking,
Unable to stop the tears falling away,
And the internal clock clacking.
There’s still one door left of advent,
Less than an hour before the deadline,
Time for more lies to invent,
To convince all the others that I am just fine.
For those that once shared,
Sat beside me on the morning,
And did nothing but care.
For those that one day may,
Celebrate without mourning,
To bring a smile. One day.
