flame has now gone out

A flame once burned 
Deep within my soul
Love we both yearned
Now I am no longer whole

God took that flame away
Left me alone to slowly die
What a price I have  to pay
For loving, now I live a lie

Why take one life
When two were entwined
Was to become his wife
Why leave me behind

Now I walk alone
Write poetry and paint
Sad and so forlorn
Now  living in restraint.

Live in life’s shadow
Sun I am without
Heart is full of sorrow
Flame has now gone out.

    I don't think I've ever read any of your poems, but I'm glad I read this one. It is beautiful and sad. It hits too close to home. Thanks for the visit and smile - Jesus loves us. Lucilla
