My soul bleeds, 

My heart in constant pain,

Memories of you draining my very being,

Weeping becoming my way of life.


Like a dry well no wetness falls from my eyes anymore.

Blank of any expression they have become,

The life that once shined from them long gone.

I have questions I can't answer.

I want to know why you gave up,

Why you left us,

What I could have done to keep you,

but you are gone my love,

And with you my spirit you took.


I try to remember what it felt like before all this grief.

I hope to remember what happiness is,

Bt those are foreign emotions in my life

Because you were that for me,

And then you had to leave.


I speak to you hoping the wind takes my words to you,

I whisper words of love hoping you are listening,

I watch the sun rise and set hoping you are watching it with me,

For even though in the grave you rest,

I want to believe forever it is for us.

So never shall I say goodbye my love,

For in my heart you shall live forever.

Now rest my love, 

For forever is not ending soon.

Beautiful. Very moving.
One of the most tender poems I have read about loss.
