Damaged Soul

My love and my best friend,
No one can’t see the tears nor
The utter futility stemming from my loss,
The aging brought on by a deeply pained faced,
so as far as laughter is concerned, it's easier said than done!
Your laughter, my laughter … I’ll want to hear them again,
Your smile, my smile … I’ll want to behold, even for a second;
Because when the joy is removed from one's life,
Then there’s no joy in living, loneliness walks with me.
I don't wish a second chance, second chances cannot fix
what has been taken from me, thus
When my life is in danger I can live with that,
But when the life of the one more precious to you
than your own is lost, it’s a quite different story.
My love and my best friend,
I live in the world of memories ...
You fill my days, my nights, my dreams,
You’re all that’s occupying my mind.
Now I'm left in pain, in sadness, and emptiness;
The pain I must face, will never leave my life
For you’re a loss I can’t replace.
In this world, the rain will fall & shed many tears of pain
The sun will shine without strength, and my life will just exist
Because my whole world is upside down, but someday, I know,
Once again, together we will be …
For when my time on earth is done, you’ll wait for me
And our eternal love once again resumed, we’ll walk,
Together, in God's presence for eternity.

      Sad indeed. Well expressed by you. Perhaps it will aide your friend in coping with his life. I certainly hope he is able to gain some balance and find meaning. You've presented his situation with great care and dignity. - Phil A.
