a poem about a man who has lost his wife to another man

The Light of My Life

Where is the light of my life

You know the one I'm talking about, my wife

She is the one who lights up my life

I haven't seen her in awhile

I wonder where she went

I know she was heaven sent

I can't believe she just up and left

without saying good-bye

I think someone must have stolen her heart

I thought I kept it in a safe place right from the start

I can't see the light of my life, it must be getting dark

Or has love mistaken me for an unkindly loving man

I know I must stand on my own two feet

But without her love I don't know if I can

The light of my life is gone

Now I must face life all alone

Unless she should come back again

This is the end

Most mournfully sad. Well expressed emotions associated with being disappointed in love. Gave it an "I Like It" vote.

Life can be most unjust. Only God knows what is, truly, in our heart/s.

Happier trails,

Ed Bradley.

Life does deal some cruel blows but we survive. A good poem with decent flow.

Oh so sad and painful but written with so much love.
You must have a big heart, to still feel this much love, beautiful poem. I think I need to take a page from your book...
