A child cries out, lost in the night,
A tiny bird falters and falls from flight.
Emerald eyes glisten from newly shed tears,
And a lost soul looks back on the wasted years.

A family screams out for the loss of their own,
The sun that once shimmered is now barely shown.
Warm, balmy breezes have now turned to ice,
And a once happy life is now not so nice.

A heart once brimming with love is now closed to all,
An invicible being has taken the fall.
Compassion thought to stand for all of time,
Now holds no kind of reason or rhyme.

I once thought my life was easy and bright,
But now upon me is a seeming eternal night.
My soul was alive with you by my side,
But along with you, my heart has died.

I know that I should move on, leave the past behind,
Go forward and seek the hope I need to find.
Yes, I realize this, I know that it is true,
But things just aren't worth it since I lost you.

Sad... powerful. I empathize. Keep up the good work, this is well-written!

I know the feeling-I've lost friends for whatever reason and am now in the process of losing another one due to my own stupid actions.
