I Lost - Poem by Robert Uy

I lost my first thought in the morning
I lost my prayer in the night
I lost the only joy of living
I lost the direction of my life
I lost what eased troubles of the day
I lost what gave weekends most pleasure
I lost what was constant in yesterdays
I lost what was to be the future
I lost confidence in my ways
I lost the swagger in my walk
I lost what parts all colors from gray
I lost whom I loved most

I lost you.

Topic(s) of this poem: loss, sadness

    Simple, profound, complete. You managed to weave the lines with rhyme and keep the idea intact, with a powerful last line that marvelously wraps up the whole poem. Excellent! 10+ (Report)Reply
