Wishing You Were Here

Every now and then I think of you and those parts of you that live in me that will never be the same. Because of you my life today aims in a different direction no place that could ever lead me back whole.Can't remember the last time I felt the need to embrace laughter without it being forced out of me or the last time I could honestly say I felt complete.All I know is that when in silence I begin to weep my hearts rhythm lulls forming songs with it's pangs that are so painfully melodic   . You are nowhere to be found but in everything I see, embrace and feel. You are ever so present still; In those obscure places of my soul that of of pure necessity have somehow managed to remain intact.You were my joy, my strength, my weakness my hope to ever fill this void.Only the gentle whisper of the wind can remind me of those tender moments you and I once shared. That plethora of wonders recanted through promises broken.  Whats left of us I wore a diamond you gave as a token. We were indeed kindred souls that love could not save. I reach out to you and all I can find is traces of emptiness ever so cruel ever so kind. My only wish is for God to allow me as day turns into night to help me find comfort  as I close my weary eyes, is to find you there in my dreams for only through this could our lives ever again in fatefulness entwine.

    Very well expressed and sad at the same time. There where times in my life that I thought I could never love again and thankfully the love I gained far exceeded all my previous loves combined. When you are in the centre of love lost it feels like all the love in the world has been drained away. Thankfully it is nothing but a lie. Wow your poem made me think all of these thoughts, well done!
