A Lost Love Poem by Billy Loving

A Lost Love

Rating: 4.9


A luminous full moon fills the sky
While I sit, I sob and cry
A ghastly site
Lies there in the night
My love, no more to be
Her soul, from this world set free

One last walk
As we reminisce and talk
In my arms, she met her death
A broken body all that's left
Lovingly her eyes I close
Petals dropping from this blooming rose
Cancer, the reason why
A final kiss as we say goodbye
From my arms she slowly slips
As my heart, in two it rips
A piece of me forever gone
As I sit all alone
Like a ship setting sail at sea
With her Maker, she's gone to be
