For Kayden

Into the darkness.
I fall from grace,
Like a broken mirror,
A scarred face.

I’m changed forever,
So over you,
Yet I can’t leave you alone,
Never to walk away.

I brake in pieces bit by bit,
The longer we are apart,
But I guess I know I’ll always,
Hold you in my heart.

Though forces hold us apart,
You’ll always be my number one,
Little Gizmo, Monkey Man,
I’ll come to you when I can.

What a beautiful poem! I especially loved the imagery in the first stanza.
