Forever In My Heart. - Poem by clifford mate

Last night I heard that you were gone,
My heart pounded with sadness that you were no
Tears clouded my vision,
I couldn't take it,
So I cried.

I sank down in the sofa,
Tears ran down my chicks,
My mind drifted on to that day we spent together,
That day you took me to the hills,
That day you showed me the beauty of sunset,
That is the day I will never forget.

As I watch people hugging and chatting,
I am thinking of our special moments,
Moments which will linger in my heart for long,
Maybe they will live forever.
It is hard to face the world without you,
Tell me,
How do I move on from this point on?

You were there when I was lost,
You always guided me home,
I still can't believe that you are gone.

With honour and respect,
With dignity that you expect,
I hold your picture and cry,
Please tell me you are not gone,
Tell me that I am dreaming and I will wake up
seeing you next to me.

I fear facing tomorrow,
For I don't know if I can hold on,
You were my strength,
Maybe if I accept that you are gone,
But it is still hard to move on from this point
where you've left me.
If I could trade places with you,
Maybe you will feel as I do,
But you can't change fate,
Maybe if time could be rewinded,
But I have to feel this pain.
What hurts me the most,
Is seeing you lying lifeless in that box,
Yet I have so much to say,
I can't take not being able to speak, touch, or
seeing you smile.

Sometimes I tell my self God has his reasons,
Other times I question his motives,
Why does he take people who I value most,
Is he testing me like he did Job?
But that I don't know,
What I know is,
It hurts loosing you so soon,
Loving you forever is what I will do,
I promise not to forget you.
R.I.P My princess,
Death has been cruel.

    For those who have lost their loved ones.
    They know that pain that you feel deep to your bones.
