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.

  • Comment from author about the poem: This poem was born out of a conversation between two friends on MPS. I was captivated by the words and I felt an urged to put it in poetic form. It has a sad tone, but we must realize that sadness is part of the human soul. Sadness is another way to deal with our reality. So please read it slowly and understand that sadness is an expression of a hurting heart looking to be soothed.
