All My Woe - Poem by Rachel Henley

I ask of you something dear.
Something heartfelt and somewhat sincere.
Hold the one you love,
Closer now, and ever so near.
Tell them how you love them so,
How them breathing, makes up for all the woe.
For the one I truly loved,
Does not, even now, even know.
How me breathing without them,
Is the reason of all my woe.

    This is poetry, so much said in so few words. It was as though the words were written for me, for the reason for all my woes is me breathing without the one whose breathing would have made up for my woes. (Report) Reply

    I loved first stanza
    The meaning is there
    Shot and clear
    Very sincere...!

    It is true...
    love comes once...
    You should keep it close...
    Not to lose...! (Report) Reply

    very touching...sometimes the best thing to do is to leave that person alone...if they care, they will return; if they don't, the most practical thing to do is move on... (Report) Reply

    To be away from the one you love is sometimes more painful than any act of violence. Beautiful writing, I expect nothing less from you. (Report) Reply
