My love #2

by Nil   Aug 14, 2017

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.

      I am trying to stay strong. But it's hard, losing your soulmate is hard.
      I know people don't believe in them sometimes heh... it's like my other half is gone. Many tears went into every line.
