Missing you,
now that you've gone.
Gone on
to a better place.

You and I
we flew so high,
together forever.

I thought you
were mine
until the day
you died.

You told me
you loved me
as you lay dying.

Wanting no more
than to hold you,
keep you safe
in my arms.

Missing you,
now that you're gone.
Memories come on
like a flood.

The tears stream
down my face,
as the first shovelful
of dirt is dropped.

You were my world,
my soul, my joy.
All I gave to you
was my heart.

Holding on
to the dreams we had,
praying for a chance
to show you I can.

Wishing you
hadn't died so soon,
there was so much
we wanted to do.

Build a house,
raise a family,
travel the world,
and live in peace.

Missing you
now and forever,
now knowing
you rest in peace.......

This is so sad but yet so sweet!
Remembering one you loved so much and wanting
them back, knowing they're at peace.
Lovely poem epoet!

beautiful and touching poem
I am moved by your words...and I understand.
we heal as we write.
take care,

 There are places inside our souls ...
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts ...
that need to be loved this much.

~Epoet,...gosh, I'm not really sure what to say, except that you've expressed yourself beautifully...and touched me with your words.  I wish you peace. *Take care.

~epoet

wow! this touched my heart so much!
i haven't read anything of yours
prior to this i don't think...it's a
pleasure to read your work. this is
very touching and sad! to lose the one
you love is so very hard...trust me i know.
i wish you grace from the Lord (if that is
what you believe in) and much peace during
this time of healing. take care.

~Epoet,...I know that I've already replied to this but I came back to read it again...and it's still just as powerfully gripping as the first time.  This poem of yours just grabs me...it's so heartfelt and it's so very touching. I wish you peace...and thank you again for sharing your heart. *Take care.

aimster and spitfire thank you very much.  It was very hard to write this but it helped me close a sad part of my life.  for more of my poetry check out the corner pub and critical analysis.  I really put my best stuff in those two for all the comments I can get help.

This one touches my heart, as someone
I love is very ill right now...when I read
this I can't help think of how it will feel
if he is no longer here.  Thank you for
sharing your heart in this piece.

butterflies,  I hope this didn't cause you too much pain.   I wrote this shortly after I left the military.  I hope it helped you treasure the time you have with your loved one.
