“I woke up to find” by Annika Cook

Annika Cook

I woke up to find

My dear heart ripped apart

I had lost what was mine

Gone was my sweetheart


Within the same week

They both had died

They had been taken away from me

I wore black and cried


My dear loved ones

Who I had taken for granted

The weight on my heart beared tons

They were gone and that was made candid
