The dark nights are getting colder
I can no longer feel the warmth of
Your hands upon my shoulders

How can I survive knowing
Never again shall I see your beautiful face
When all I ever hoped for is to share an eternity
In the comfort of your embrace

The last thing I ever wanted
Was to hurt you, but I have
Now, it is me who hurts the most
Your memory haunts me like a ghost

Feeling your presence wherever I go
What peace can I find
When you've infiltrated every part of my soul

Like a flower in the desert
Left to wither and die
Are the tears for you I have cried
Missing the love I once found
In those gentle raven eyes

How can I survive without you by my side
The blue withdrawn from my skies
Your love never again to be mine

    Hi Madelin, i don't know why I never read your poetry before... Perhaps I did not want to intrude... anyways, I missed out reading your beginning work. After reading this one and a few others I know I'm going to enjoy reading all of your past and new poems... pSSSSSSSSS..... I wish you had the perfect answer on surviving without the love of my life. ha! Still i love this... thanks for sharing...Linda
