My Darling Amy - Poem by Josie Brooks

My darling Amy,
I stand here every day,
I know you will no longer feel pain,
Because you have gone away.

My darling Amy,
I remember when you were taken from me,
I remember the ache, the loss,
I know now you are free.

My darling Amy,
I stand at your grave,
I know I have to carry on,
I know I have to be brave.

My darling Amy,
I don't understand,
You were getting better,
I was holding your hand.

My darling Amy,
I wish to you I could tell,
That now you're gone,
Each day is a living hell.

My darling Amy,
I still see your smile,
I still hear your voice,
This makes me happy (at least for a while)

My darling Amy,
I wish you could see,
How much I love you,
How much you mean to me.

My darling Amy,
Don't worry about me,
Soon I'll be with you,
Soon I'll be free.

My darling Amy,
Soon I will see you,
Soon we'll be together,
My darling Amy.

    This poem is personal, powerful, and emotional. But thats about it.
    Now that's a lot. But poems need something other than emotion
    to be memorable and ultimately meaningul beyond the emotions they create.
    That's why I gave this a 7. In the end, sadness needs beauty more than
    tears.
