My life is a tragedy
So be prepared to cry
They say time heals all wounds
I know that is a lie

I had searched my whole life
And finally I found
The one meant for me
Love and joy abound

How quickly all that changed
On one ill-fated day
The day death claimed my love
Death stole her away

Maddened by my grief
Consumed by my sorrow
She was my future
Now I have no tomorrow

I stare at her picture
I long for her touch
I can still smell her
I miss her so much

I pick up my gun
And contemplate death
What use in living
When I feel so bereft

But life is a gift
And I haven't the right
So I put down my gun
And I weep through the night

I mourn for her daily
I find no relief
My soul is tormented
My heart filled by grief

My life without meaning
No feelings but pain
Death claimed my lady
I can't love again

My bedmate is rage
My friend misery
I live for my death
'Cause she's waiting for me

This was very good, it really moved me. I think you are right... from what I have seen, time does NOT heal all wounds, though we all like to think it does. I think healing requires a combination of things... all different for each person. Bravo, for such a well-written piece!

it's funny how quickly things can change. How quickly one's feelings can change
You think something is forever and you are fooled.

I literally feel this one. Death claimed my love also. Although I can't say that I ever wanted to die it's true something inside of me has died. I don't think we will ever be the same people we were before but with God's help we can go on with life. (I'm assuming this is about you). Great poem.
