The step was not there

The shock was unreal

held close and dear

then here no more

loved and missed

gone like the step

my heart dropped

with a thud in my chest

waiting for him

looking out the window

for something no more

fine but broken

tears, friends and smiles

mends the broken pieces

but never fixed

forever a missing step.

-By R.D. Jess

( This poem was written in loving memory of Garrett Rankin)

I am a lover of writings and over the years I have collected a handful of poems and stories I have written. The more I wrote the more I realized I should do something with it, besides putting it in a box.
