A poem about when you lose a loved one

When we lose a loved one


When we lose something that is precious to us, we are left with a feeling of sadness.
I don't think that you ever imagined how the pain would hurt and Words cannot express the amount of emotions that have come with the trying of letting you go.

You awake each morning to start a new day,

but the pain of losing love ones never goes away.

You put on a mask, and a brave face it makes everything seem alright,

to the ones who keep asking “how you doing are you all right”.

There is nothing anyone could do or say. The sadness and tears will stay.

Cause When you lose someone you love, life will change, you rearrange,
and everything around you will seem so strange.

The things you did together are just pictures in a book or memories in your mind.

The world will seem to spin in a different way, you feel alone and wont sleep your mind

Will not shut off thinking of the past and what more you could have done.

But as time goes on things will get better trust me it will and the brick wall that seems to stand in your way will fall everything just comes together.

And you will get on with your life you must cause life is too short and we must make every day count. At first it will seem strange and people might say” looks like there over it now”.

But no, you’re not over it you’re just getting on with your life.

Your heart is like a vault full of love still and memories.

And your heart will never let them go completely away. 

So yes, the loss of a loved one is the hardest thing to do but always

Remember they loved you and they are still with you and watching you until you meet again.
