Lost and alone, thoughts at a distance, heart heavy
Touched deeply by your life, not wanting to let go,
yet knowing I must.
In my heart forever, indelibly printed on my soul,
etched in memory's mind.
Touched frequently by the tears of your loss, trying
to hold them as tiny reminders of what we used to have.
They disappear, never become tangible so I may keep them
like a treasure of your love.
With love, I will remember you all my life, for you are
a part and parcel of what we had.
Sharing now that you are no longer here is difficult - I
hear only the constant echoes of your silence.
Walking away from our favorite places, I leave a little
of self behind each time - soon there will be nothing
left of me.
Wanting to reach out and grasp again what we once had
is an empty gesture, filled with pain and emptiness,
because you are not here to reach out to me.
Our relationship on earth will never be, it has been
severed by death's insistence in our lives.
Listening to you with my heart, seeing your reply in
the salted tears that continue to fall.
Your life was called and you answered fully, not leaving
Our story is not over as long as I still remember you with
Taking down the black curtains, life is still being lived
What a beautiful and touching poem RoseAnn. So heartfelt. Sorry to say it really happens and it's impossible to sever oneself from a loving soul and hold on to it. What is left is just pain and memories. I am very moved by your next lines: Wanting to reach out and grasp again what we once had is an empty gesture, filled with pain and emptiness, because you are not here to reach out to me. Thank you for sharing. Sincerely Yours, Valentin Savin

A really heart touching poem... A great poem👍
Listen Roseann my child. This masterpiece is so impressive and yet so depressing. It has only one short shade of a central color and it is isolated - though very bright, its character is a burden of maturity... Listen... my child. Perfect piece!
