The Smiles We Lost

torn apart.
my heart.
lies on the ground.
gone out with the oceans sound.

my world now gone.
the children to which i sung.
the home that we built.
the love that we felt.

is ripping me apart
not knowing where they are.
not knowing where to start.
i wander the streets alone.

my town now a tomb.
too many lost to know
numbers too high to bestow.
i pick myself up today.

so that their legacy will not sway.
so our memories will continue to play
in the minds of friends and family.
as we dwell on the smiles we have lost.

as we think of the staggering cost.
to rebuild a town once strong.
a fishing village long gone.
where my life still lives.
