I woke to find my sunshine shattered,

Deprived of everything that mattered;

My happiness was a flag tattered,

And I was in the gloom.

The people all around me seemed

Unseeing of my saddened gaze;

Perhaps they thought I still but dreamed

And wandered in my daze.

Now all that once was me

Is changed or ceased to be

That time so long ago

When time went oh so slow.

Don’t let this be the end of everything!

I pray my hopes for later are not lost.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Not much to say about this, except that this poem really came about cuz those first three lines stuck in my head.

I love this poem. It just flows right through the heart of me. You really touched something special here. One feels the pain in reading this. And yet, don't we all know this pain firsthand anyhow?
