This poem was one that I finished writing today. The essence of this is essentially how much loss we can feel at losing the person that we love... The person who was once our support, our lover and our friend and now we come to a point in our life whereby the person who we loved each and every day can soon pass away from this life and leave our hearts in such pain and sorrow. I wanted to show how love is such a powerful thing to human beings and how we can be affected by the loss of our partner.

Goodnight my sweet darling,

The one who I loved with all my heart,

You were my light in the darkness,

And now my world has been torn apart.

 

Each and every morning I awake,

Hoping that you will be lying next to me,

But when my senses come to,

All I can see is a bed that is empty.

 

The shackles of sorrow keep me prisoner,

As my eyes weep for your return,

The heavens won't give you back my love,

Oh this heart of mine in pain does burn.

 

You weren't just my lover sweetheart,

You were my support and my friend,

But now I feel like a bird without wings,

Never to be with you until the end.

 

You had a heart of such love,

One that captivated each soul you met,

But I no longer hear your tender melodies,

Each time I see a picture of you I just get upset.

 

You were an angel that walked the earth,

My angel that brightened up each and every day,

But now your wings have taken you to the heavens above darling,

I know that nothing can bring you back whatever I say.

 

A one in a million you were to me,

An irreplaceable sweet human being,

Now that your kind light has vanished,

'Tis only darkness that I am seeing.

 

What I would give my darling,

To be holding your hand once more,

To gaze at the beautiful starry sky,

Letting our souls in loving harmony soar.

 

If I had but one wish,

It would be to have you once again by my side,

To smell your fresh scent and to kiss upon your tender lips,

Truly my love the apple of my eye.

 

But I guess this is the way it has to be,

With me down here and you up there,

I just want you back sweetheart,

Oh how life is so unfair.

 

We shall meet again soon my darling,

Where we can finally be together,

Holding hands in that peaceful place,

Where our love will last forever.
