Of Love And Loss

No,
You can never have him back.
The tears start to flow,
No matter what you do,
No matter how much you try,
The pain is always there,
Like a dented rack,
Whose notches turn,
From my flesh into my blood
More painful every day,
No matter what I do
Nor what I say,
The pain is always there
And will Never go away.

No,
You never recover,
From love and loss,
You become like a stone
That gathers no moss
Against a painted sky,
The day all stars were lost,
And all hope had to die.

    Poignant and heartbreakingly beautiful description of loss Sandra. I love the last two lines especially. It certainly feels like we never recover and I admit life is never the same. But I did recover and now I feel the presence of the beloved everywhere. He is never more than a breath of love away. Thank you Sandra
