Cold teardrops from above wet my hair,
And chill the tears that were already there.

I try to keep warm but I just grow colder,
I want to rest my head on your strong shoulder.

I remember the sun, the warm summer rain,
And the arms that chased away all my pain.

Did we know what it meant when we let go?
Didn't you know how much I love you so?

No one's touch feels like your touch,
Only you can get to me that much.

No one's kiss moves me inside,
No one else could erase these tears I've cried.

Alone in this cold, strangers just come and go,
All of them could never possibly know.

You've cast a shadow upon my life,
And your absence stabs like a knife.

Even without you, I'm blinded by your light,
When you're gone nothing seems right.

    Wow, the purest words of pain, and distance expressed in this beautiful, yet sad piece, Emily. Amazing honesty, with images fully exposed. Enjoyable overall. Check out some of my poems, might find some you like, peace.

    Beautiful poem of love. Very touching and I mean it. Im sure this is probably about a relationship, but mysister recently passed away and this made me think of her. Brought tears to my eyes. Thankyou.
