Alone In Love - His Passing - Poem by Kathleen J. Shields

As I sat on the steps of our Victorian porch
I virtually extinguished my inner torch
He was gone and he would not come back
And as much as my heart hurt it was not an attack.

I knew he was gone, I didn’t know what to do
as the memories inside me kept trying to subdue
My beating heart alive with love
Knew no better than to hold on of…

A miraculous life so full and merry
A moment of heartache for me to carry
Alone in love I sit hear moping
Alone in love I feel like hoping

Hoping to awaken from this miserable life
Extinguish the pain with a cloud cutting knife
Bring me to consciousness in a room full of bliss
Have him roll over and on my lips kiss

Make the warming sunshine be rising to greet
Not setting the day in utter defeat
May it rise high above our Victorian house
May it stay in the sky as I love on my spouse

May this day be forever, may the sun never set
May this be just the kind of day to never forget

But as I sit here moping upon this stair
I begin to feel alone in utter despair
And I know it’ll be a long while till day
So I go back to my dream and continue to pray.

May he always be happy, may he find inner peace
May his transition be easy, this life to release
May his soul find its way, imagination surpassing
May life go on – after his passing.
