When you walked into my life my whole world changed for the good

The day I fell in love with you was the day my soul lit up

And there was nothing I wanted more than to be with you

And every day was a kind of paradise on earth

Every night just being by your side was the happiest time of the day

And now you are gone from my side

And I don’t know what to do without you

I am existing but not living

I am moving but inside am frozen with fear

Tears come easily and I ache in every way for you

There is no magical cure

There is just this emptiness

And the quiet

And the endless days that repeat like a broken record

I am told this too shall pass

And I will begin to live again

But it will not be the life we had

But I hope to breathe again and admire the goodness and beauty of life

Rather than mourn your passing, I will rejoice that we lived the life we did

And with God’s mercy I will be by your side again in another kind of paradise

You put your feelings into words quite eloquently. One thing that had (has) helped me along the way was the fact I feel fortunate to have experienced true love, thankful for the years together and all that I learned from him. Of course, I would loved to have had more time with him and I still miss him and think of him every day. We always want more. Parting is a difficult thing, but it will happen at some point. Focusing on gratitude instead of all the other things helped me gain perspective. Love is what makes life worth living yet, not everyone will find it. I am thankful that I did.
