So, last night was one of those nights, one of those times, where I just broke down into a deep sorrowful cry. It came out of nowhere. Maybe it was because I had things to do yesterday so I tried to be normal which is an understatement. Holding in your emotions to get through each and every day is rough, tough, and almost unbearable. It's so exhausting. So, at the end of the day when I could relax, I think it hit me. I usually cry throughout the day here and there, but yesterday I had things to do. I cried for a while on the floor of my bedroom. I cried out for my husband (not yelling, I am not a yeller or screamer). 

It hurts so much that it is just so confusing. I don't know which way to turn or where to go in life. I'm so lost without my husband because he was my future.

Once again, beautiful poetry. Brings tears to my eyes. It is surreal. Fresh and deep. 
I"m so sorry for your loss. I know this site helps us cope and be able to understand one another's pain and feelings. 

I thank you for allowing me to read the beautiful poems you wrote for your wife. They do relate so much to how I feel of losing my husband.

i'm so sorry for your loss,I lost my wife on 10/29/2010 we were together for 27 years ,and i still cry,                                                                                                            Tears from the Soul 

Look into my eyes and you'll see into my soul 
You'll see the love and how it's taken its' toll
Look into my heart,you'll find love there too 
And how it's left it crying,lonely and blue
Look at the tears as they drip from my heart 
They're from a lonely soul that's being torn apart
They well up from my soul because it  has lost its' mate
To a crying heart that's been left alone to its' fate
Tears from the soul are the hardest to cry
Because they come from a pain so deep and they never dry
In memory of Janet "Lee"
