You Are Gone

I’m lost everyday when I wake, at the emptiness lying next to me
When I read the morning paper, the news is not to share
My coffee is never waiting for me anymore, neither is your kiss
Solitary walks are shortened, without companionship
The meals do not taste the same, the flavor you added is missing
I fall asleep watching movies, and books hold no interest
Some of the light has vanished from the day
As more of the darkness is invading my nights
While I’m sleeping, in my dreams you tease 
I dread all the tomorrows, where you will not be

    Congrats to you Shani! One could definitely feel that loneliness here, especially after losing a loved one...this write just tugs at the heartstrings

    Thank you everyone. Debbie, I thought we were not supposed to label it with the emotion...darn...I was going for loneliness. Sorry for tears, Carolyn, but I guess that means I did a good job with my words. Joyce, this is not an emotion that I've ever had to deal with; I just picked one and started writing.

    Dear Shani, your poem brought tears to my eyes. The despondency you describe is just how one feels after losing a loved one. Beautifully written, my friend, and now a favorite for me. Congratulations on your win in Deb's contest! Love, Carolyn

    Congrad's Shani, I was unsure of the emotion it could have been sorrow, depression, lonliness if labeled it might have been higher ;) Most of all you had me there with you "missing" a significant other...Light & Love
