The Cruelest Blow

Here i am away from you
As time just marches on
I can feel it all slip slowly from my hands
Til one day its just all gone.
I think about my love for you
Some days it seems just a dream
And all i can do is hold the memory
Of how things used to be
I gaze upon your photo
And your smile brightens up my heart
But when i lie down in my empty bed
My soul just falls apart.  
You were what i always wished for
I thank God for the day that i met you
But life has played the cruelest joke
By stealing my moments planned for you.

    Such a sad and beautiful piece, Carl. I read through it twice and could feel your longing for the person you love. Good work, my friend. Hugs, Licia :-)

    Carl, you have expressed your sadness with such beauty. I hope you are drawing from a long ago memory and that this is not something you are currently going through.
