Why Is It? - Poem by Arti Chopra

why is it..
that i cant sleep...
when u are not there..
why is it, that life seems so lacklustre..
without you...empty and bare..
why are you, in my thoughts
morning, noon and night
wish that God would never
ever, let you out of my sight
thirty three years together,
is quite a while
to know and love someone
a very vital part of me
seems to have got undone,
so many years and still in love
seems hard to believe,
seems but only yesterday
that you entered my life
a blessed gift did I recieve,
dashing and handsome,
eyes that captured my soul
winning ways, heartbreaking smile,
took a heavy toll
we were wed,
against all odds
and have walked the path of life together
been there for each other
in bright sunshine and stormy weather
now, toward the end
of lifes journey
the love has become yet stronger,
days and nights away from you
seem more lonely and even longer
its a union i know
blessed by the divine
you were made by Him for me,
to be mine and only mine
I know we have to part some day,
my love.the thought haunts me
God knows
lets make the most of life together
till we say the final goodbye
