I miss him in my Life
   so few will understand
So many years so filled with strife
   I just wanted "hand in hand"
a Heart to turn and look my way
   and what's so wrong with that ?
If Love is truly Love
   then what you have is where it's at
If the sharing of two Hearts
   surpasses all you've ever known
then the "Gift" that you've been given
   is a Testament that's shown

And the Friendship therein lies
   in so much the word implies
and he fails to realize
   Love's what matters if it tries
But the world and he denies
   another meaning in their eyes
and now this heart within me dies

I miss him in my Life
   Could you really understand ?
He's taking on a wife
   Out of shame, I'm one to strand
He found he had a son by err
   so now I am left behind
his guilt has propagated Terror
   "Abandonment" replacing "Kind"
His Heart once turned and looked my way
   it felt so good to feel his need
and now he's hiding every day
   afraid to show in word or deed
But it's Openess in self
   that opens any Loving "Door"
Honesty that's on the shelf
   could be forgotten ever more

The Sharing that we had
   how could it ever be called "Bad" ?
and now all alone I find...
   this pain that is a Knife
      for every moment...
         how I miss him in my Life

Oh, Geoffrey...This is
really sad.
Love is love and I'm
sorry for the pain you have.
It's better to find out,
but sad to pay the cost....
hope you find out that
all is not lost.

Sweet writing on a painful
subject...for some people.

Luck and hugs to you!

Geoffrey~
Lost love is so dreadfully painful and it takes a long time to get over if ever fully but in time maybe another will cross your path and your heart can heal  
Hugs

Love is the life of the soul...
It is the harmony of the universe

I understand completely...
honest...and you write well..
keep it up...
see you around

If all was light...then I would have never learnt the dark...from which such truth evolves
from which evolves the light...

God, do I understand....
this is written with an emotional heart on sleeve sincerety that it touches places deep.
One would have to be made of stone not to feel something when reading this.
Time heals our hearts...but some things never leave us...
somethings never should............
