The ties binding our souls
Stretch between life and death,
The love filled threads holding me upright
Without them I could not stand
Emotion swirl within my head
My heart shattered.-
Whispering.. why couldn't it
Be me instead
For now our fated meeting
Will have to wait for my end
Just shy of that tender embrace
A lack of, meaning regret
My eyes look to the sky
Rain pouring down my cheeks
Whispers of my love
Caresses in the breeze
Closing my eyes, your smell lingers
Comforting my shattered soul
Until we meet again, I yearn...
Until then, I'll never be whole
Recently the love of my life passed away from blood clots in his lungs. He was only 31. Embrace those you love. And let them know how you feel. Because tomorrow isn't a sure thing. I am grieving. I wrote this in an airport flying home from the funeral of this man. If you are grieving and you need someone to listen. Reach out to me. I'll listen.
This made me shed some tears. I feel true love in these heartfelt lines. You have written it beautifully that the sadness here cuts deep in the reader. I am so sorry for your loss, and hoping you will stay strong.
