the shield has been lifted
my eyes are startled by the light
everything i knew and possessed
has now escaped my sight

my heart has stopped beating
my breathing has ceased
my life is crumbling around me
without you there is no peace

the summer has turned to autumn
light has turned to dark
without your hand within mine
the bleakness is more stark

why was my vision limited
to within the boundaries near?
why couldn't i focus on what lay beyond?
unconsciously was it my fear?

to hold you in my arms
sent a rivet up my spine
to kiss you so tenderly
the reassurance you were mine

but now without you i am lost
now gone what i had cherished
an emptiness within my heart
my love though far from perished

controlling you? overshadowing your life?
my mind not once considered this
apoligies may not make amends
but what i need is your forgiveness

please don't turn your back
i surrender my heart to you
my love is much more than eternal
for this love is clearly true

 "tears are the essence of our souls"

This is beautiful. Truly beautiful. I hope you find peace of mind soon. Love will come by again, you will find happiness again. Blue skies around the corner....

Love and hugs,
