I Lost the Love of My Life Today

I lost the love of my life today
I held her hand as she slipped away.

Although my heart wished she would stay
I told her to go, that I’d be ok

for her suffering was too much to bear
And to wish her here would not be fair.

I lost the love of my life today
I’m struggling hard to find my way

She was the one who held me strong
When life was tough and all went wrong.

She was the one whose strength I clung
She was the one my soul had sung

And now she’s gone and I’m on my own
And alls I hear is this endless drone

My mind is numb and my body weak
My soul it has no words to speak

I lost the love of my life today
I Don’t even have the strength to pray

Except to say “dear God Oh WHY”
Why in the world did she have to die?

Hi Bernard, A beautiful expression of heart felt pain. I pray that it was your vivid imagination that created it and not your reality. God Bless huberta

Bernard, a sad poem. Somehow I felt the uplifting view that everything will be okay at the end. I will connect your ending question with my grandson. Why o' why God''' oh why'??? Mostly it hurts not to know the answer. All I can do is hold on till the day we are united. A sad feeling and void no one will ever explain.... always~ Linda

A loss like this cannot be explained or understood unless they have walked in your shoes. God Bless You Linda on your journey of grief.

Thank You Rick, Yes that "knowing" that I will be reunited once again is what keeps me breathing each day, and knowing that God is carrying me and my cross. Blessings
