I would like to dedicate this poem to a very special lady without whom it would not exist. Thanks for all your help Christy
Words of silence echo through this lonely room The sound of her voice fills it with gloom Seeing her photograph brings back painful memories Of watching her walk away it brings me to my knees
I'll never know why she left me standing in the rain Crying tears of emptiness is driving me insane All I wanted was to love her, never wanted to see her cry But the day she walked out I felt my heart had died

You've expressed your sincerity very well in this piece. So often, writing can help us address our "tears of emptiness" and what causes them. Thank you for sharing this here...hope your tears are drying soon.
As Rosemary said, it pops back at the most unexpected time. But someone will come along to pick you up off your knees and fill your heart once again.
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
As with the seasons, winter brings a kind of death and spring a new life. Winter is harsh and being in the midst of it we can be blind to the coming of spring. Your spring will come and your heart will experience new life. Just remember that hidden deep beneath the cold of hurt, there is a seed that will not die.

Jeffrey~ The hope I see is that you gently thank Christy for her help.
Love in it's leaving our lives causes the tears to fall ... but eventually getting past the tears .. causes us to see exactly why that person was special enough to cause the tears. That's when the good memories begin to surface. Look forward ... but remember those who have touched your life in a positive and memorable manner. ~*Marge*~
