She stood holding the back of the chair
as his coffin was lowered into the hole
she closed her eyes to the finality
of losing a part of her soul.

She felt his warm presence behind her
and opened her eyes hoping to see
his death was a hoax that someone
created out of cruelty.

Silently shedding tears of sorrow
praying that she would be brave
wondering how to go on without him
as she stood here at his grave.

The sun broke through the clouds
and she felt his warmth inside
felt his heart join hers as it beat
and heard his laughter in her mind.

She turned and gathered her children
to her waiting motherly breast
smiling, she told them their father
was peacefully at rest.

She walked away from the sadness
seeking the future to find
always feeling him in her
his laughter in her mind.

Poet, it is nice to find someone that shares my love of poetry with what appears to be true, heartfelt angst.

My best friend, my everything, committed suicide three years ago...when i was told i didn't believe anyone... i had to see him myself and even then it didn't seem real.. it took a year to get over that hallow feeling left behind... and to this day when i look up at the sky and see a blinking star i smile because it's his smile i feel in my heart...

You kind of reached inside me and gave my heart one big tug.  Very moving.
