Missing You

I look across the bed… you’re not there… you’re dead.
I look across the bed and see…you’re no longer next to me.

I reach over and try to feel your skin,
and remember all the joy there had been…

but my hands come back empty…trying desperately to hold on,
barely clinging to life now that your gone.

And I let out a cry I’m quite sure heaven hears,
Or will it linger in limbo for all of my years.

How lonely this bed, where imprisoned I lay.
How long can I take this day after day?

They say that in spirit your right next to me.
But that is no comfort for it’s blackness I see.

They say that it’s time to move on with my life,
But they have no clue of my pain and my strife.

You were my best friend, my angel, my love,
You were hand picked for me from above.

You were the one who’s soul I adored
Whatever I did you were there to applaud.

You alone knew me inside and out,
And the love that we shared left no one to doubt.

For you were my angel sent from above,
To care for, to lean on, to cherish and love…..

So I’ll go back to bed where imprisoned I lay,
And hope for a joy that visits someday.

    oh, my.... this was a straight poem. Bernard, i don't know how you did it, coming to this point. Do you call it accepting your loss. I don't think I could sleep in the same bed if my love was to leave me behind. I would find the pillows hard to stare at.... I'm feeling a bad painful pen. sorry, that your pain refreshers my own. you are a poet hero in my eyes. xox~ Linda

    Hi Linda, I actually don't sleep in the same bed, I did in the beginning and then quickly moved to one of the spare rooms. I can't call it acceptance, I just pray for strength to make it through each day. thank you for the compliment coming from another poet hero. your words put hope in my heart Big Hugs to you.

    So many of us live our lives oblivious to the pain that exists in others lives. It is hard to imagine what you have gone trough. Your words certainly help me understand.

    So sorry for the pain you are going through, you are doing the right thing writing about it. Each verse written is a tribute to the love you still feel and will always feel. I'm afraid there is no way to tell how long you will feel so very lost, just know folks here will listen & we too will pour out our hearts to you. Light & Love
