Best Betty Bateson Poems

+ Fav Poet


when the sun's reflection lights up the sky
your face is so vivid it overwhelms my eye
you lost your battle and now you're free
but what is going to happen to me
deafening silence fills up each room
please tear me away from this awful gloom 
in my dreams our souls have crossed
upon awakening I still feel lost
days and nights that I spend alone
wondering why you had to be gone
I am drowning in a sea of tears
as loneliness brings out new fears
a wounded soul the pain is deep
I hold your pillow and pray for sleep

    I just posted a poem Titled Loneliness also. I did not know your poem was titled the same. I just read your poem and it was so beautiful. It was so well written that I could feel the loneliness that you wrote about. I Know that you and your poem had touched many lives. And for that I thank you.

    This touches so many, for it is a common sad fact of life, that those left behind have a hill to climb. Congratulations on this heart-wrenching poem!
