too sad to reflect

I walk by the shore
With my heart in my hand
Trying to find myself
As I kick at the sand.

Why am I so lost?
Now you have gone
We were so young
Now I am alone

I look in the rock pool
For the reflections that I see
I am sure I can see you
Standing behind me

I reflect all the good times
We were both young at heart
So many promises
We made at the start

When we were at college
We met in the breaks
Rush home to see you again
Hoping you’ll wait.

I reflect on the sad times
When cancer was found
You left me alone Ian
I left you in the ground.

I look into the mirror
Hoping your there
Standing behind me
Stroking my hair

My eyes don’t reflect
They have died inside
No hope shows  in them
From the day that you died.

    (cont) .. my understanding is only a possibility of something I don't want to reflect on. I can only listen and look and marvel, because surely you at your weakest are a very strong person. Time, even if, it doesn't cure all, it treats all, in my experience of loss anyway. Thank you for sharing and I hope putting it in words helps somehow. I think it helps me, because I truly become one with the problem or experience. Ok too much already, sorry for long comment, probably doubly inappropriate.

    I don't even feel appropriate commenting. I listen to My Immortal by Evanescence and reflect too. This is a time when I say I don't want to even imagine what you may have felt, may feel, because truly, it's too sad. There are sayings like, "it's always calm, before the storm," and "it's always darkest before the light." If theres no more light then it will just get darker and darker, if there's no polar opposite, no storm, and it will never be calm. However, since I can't even imagine this..
