- Eternal Breath -

I have been to your grave to lit a candle for you today
Can not find peace as long as I have grief and the loss is in my heart
Emptiness is so difficult, an empty bed, an empty chair and an empty room
You have shown your love touched so many hearts
Done more on earth that many of us can only dream of
Here at your grave I'm trying to build a bridge that leads me to you
My heart cries, tears like blood in my veins
There is not a day that goes by without longing for your safe warm arms


Walking along on the beach brings comfort to my soul
You will find me here in my sad silence
Feels as if the waves will devour my thoughts
Can I lift myself up from this deepest dark
Are our souls bound together forever
Illusion, or you can hear my thoughts and screams


It feels like I'm dying slowly .... little by little
I kneel here at your grave, alone
The day has come, my journey without you
All words will be poor. . . I do not say goodbye
.... until we meet again dear .....
Rest in peace - rest in Heavens Flower Meadow

    that is all what the poetry is about or meant to fulfill in a burst of human emotions in life in the mist of emptiness in lost dearest one and precious in the soul love In cry tears of heart who only we can say pearls but grief In black like the grief is dark left behind after light and life gone

    Dear Anne-Lise, I don't know which is harder-- the actual death of a loved one, or the sadness that follows. Maybe they are equal. Beautiful poem. Bev
