Love, Is Lost

You lived for two months and eighteen days You lived for seventy seventy days You lived for one thousand eighteen hundred and forty eight hours There were times when you were happy and loved You were celebrated Your were a welcome addition to my life There were times when you were sad and painful You were misunderstood You were an unwelcome distraction in my life But you were loved You were appreciated You were craved in the most basic human ways Even now that you are gone I long for the good times Times you brought me laughter Times you brought me peace But now all you give me are the memories All you give is pain and sorrow All you give is longing for the past My heart aches in your absence It beats harder trying to fill the gaps It beats fast, in time with the silent tears I know the grief your passing will fade in time I know the tears will dry with time I know the pain will fade as time goes on But with her face everywhere I turn With her voice in every corner Time stands still And I am left drowning in my memories of the love we once had
