One More Day

Then while I held you
The world felt just right 
Our twin hearts beating
Wrapped round you at night

You’d filled all the holes
That burst in my soul
Slow spreading like glue
Until I felt whole

I loved what my life was
With you by my side
Content overwhelmed me
My lonely had died

Dear God won’t you gift me
One more perfect day
This heart wrenching sadness
Can’t go on in this way

Please take my own soul
Is this what you must do
Pain brittles my bones
This can't be my truth

Please just one more chance
To hold him at night
To feel his heart beat
To make my world right

Dear God … please grant me
JUST one more day
One last … I love you
Take my tears away

A truly sad, but soulful poem, Judith. You expressed your loss w/adequate words hard to find. A rare ability indeed. Fine poem w/a sorrowful yearning of love loss. Love and joy always.

So sad, that last part. JUST one more day. Such longing in that phrase and "take my tears away" Really enjoyed this.

Touching poem, How so many wish they could spend one more day with the one they love, once they are gone sadly that is not possible.. sometimes a soul searches for something similar, but rarely finds that perfect match to make that perfect day... Emotive poetry Judy..

Dear Silent One ... thank you so very much for your kind and understanding comments. The song choice was not mine ... but a recommendation from a good friend and mentor. I originally had something not quite so fitting. This superbly creates the mood of my words. Best, Judy

Ahhh ... thank you Jan for your lovely comments. Maybe I'll try to put a few chords together. I wish I had that talent. I can read music ... but sadly can't create it. Appreciate you reading. Best, Judy
