The Journey

You are my hearts delight

And where you are I long to be

When you were there  our world seemed right.

I felt at peace -  and feeling free.


Now  I am living through the night

A place I do not want to be

Its all because your out of  sight

And daily I’m in reverie.


I think of you no matter what

And set aside the daily tasks

Things to do but I cannot

My face shows all the widows marks.


Oh my love let your light shine

For I can no longer shine alone

For I am yours and your still mine

Both filled with the love that we have known.


As days go by  the yearning grows

parted now for such  a long time

How to survive, heaven knows

I only know that the spirit pines.


Nothing really fills the space

No matter what is done or said

I’m told to  carry on the race

Inspite of all the tears I’ve shed.


Glorious hope comes in small pieces

Does not last  though - through the day

I do not know just what it teaches

All I know he’s gone away.


Now  its many months gone by

I ‘ve had a dream of his dear face

I felt the peace and  gave a sigh

In heaven  reunion  would take place.

My roses 7th November

Thank you liz and amlm9  - glad the poem meant something for you both.  Because it just poured out, I thought it might be something "beyond me" that would resonate with some of  you.

This is beautiful and completely describes the way I feel.  Nothing fills the space, but I keep going.
