So much of what I knew – Ina Schroders-Zeeders

You were so much of what I knew as life,
you went and never I had felt such pain,
no part of this great love remained with me.
I lived alone and loss had shown us how.
You went and never I had felt such pain,
when others said it had been for the best
I lived alone. And loss had shown us how
you found your rest. I can not sleep at nights.
When others said it had been for the best
as they would never understand just how
you found your rest. I can not sleep at nights,
I miss your hand, your eyes, your love.
As they would never understand just how
our bodies yearn for those they can not see.
I miss your hand, your eyes, your love.
My nights are darker than a grave could be.

    Brilliant poem. As you rightly pointed, you only know the pain and life spent together. It’s very easy to pass judgement but losing a loved one is painful. Nevertheless, I am sure he is always there with you and looking at you. That’s the beauty of love, no matter how painful it is.
