Fallen Pillars

by Brian Francis

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking
About what I could have done
Could I have been a better brother
Could I have been a better son
Is there something that I might have missed
That could have changed it all
You never let me falter
You never let me fall

Standing at your funerals
tears were in my eyes
words that were left unsaid
burning in my mind
images of better times
dancing in my thoughts
alone a man against the world
fallen pillars of support

I wonder if you’d loved me
despite my many flaws
If being your life’s burden
Bred resentment after all
Differences of opinion
Did I too proudly stand alone
Failing in so many ways
In deed in act in tone

It seems the world’s more empty
Knowing you’re not there
I seems the world’s more scary
Without you being there
But I will press on the cause
I will live without you here
Your memories not haunting me
But giving me good cheer
