Lovers Suicide - Poem by Patrick Shields

Your love left my heart beating against my chest
Your kindness was like a soft kiss on the cheek
But now you lay in a casket being laid to rest
I get a sickening feeling in my stomach and my legs feel weak

I fall to my knees tears falling from my dark eyes
I run my hands through my hair blaiming myself
You where supposed to live much longer than I
I wish I could've have been there before you killed yourself

Now that your gone this world seems a lot less bright
But you must've known what I would have to do
I'll have to die too hopefully this very last night
Because I'd rather leave this life than live in it without you

Even if we did break up I still love you so very much
This world was so hard though, depressing and at times trying
But now that your gone I will never again feel your touch
So now I wish you could see how much I'm crying

After we broke up that I was always worried about you
You asked why I simply answered that I love you sweetie
You sat in shock not knowing what to say except I love you too
And that made my heart jump knowing you still loved me

So I'll make a request to be buried right next to you
In my casket next to your grave six feet beneath the ground
This is the only way to end my tears what else can I do
No one will even notice never again will I make a sound
