Today was the last day of forever,
you walked away, my dreams left
too. They were sewn into your heart.
You kissed my cheek so softly,
and said you were sorry.
How can I let you go,
when pieces of my heart are stitched in knots
within your soul? It hurts.
The sun shines down, her warm fingers
stroking the void that's left
by your untimely departure,
such futility. My hopes cry out
salvation from the agony
seems too far for me to find.
Trapped in hollow silence
I sit here oblivious to watchful eyes
that have always been there.
A gentle breeze whispers in my mind
"I know you're dying,
but stand up for me. Keep walking
into tomorrow, I'll be there
waiting."
Tears come, unrelenting
their sorrows washing my face
soothing balm to a fragile shell.
I raise my face to the glorious sun
and she takes my pain by
increments. A sweet smile upon her visage,
and my heart begins to beat again,
not whole, but healing.

Luck,

Once again you capture your feelings beautifully. Sometimes, it seems that emotions are not worth it. But we are very lucky to feel what we feel; joy, sorrow, pain, kindness, all of it. We are blessed to feel it all. We are human beings and that is how we are. So feel it all, write it out, cry it out, shout it out, live it out.

Thank you for sharing.

Love and light,

Holly

My dearest LuckintheShadows you may never know how deeply touches my heart right now. I have recently been reminded how fragile mortality is with the death of my 22 year-old brother in law and the prospect that my younger cousin may also lose her husband in a battle with a chronic heart condition. Its kind of scary to realize that Michael was only 2 months younger than.
On Monday I attended the most touching and beautiful funeral for him that reflect much of the sentiment that your poem does. And when I read this I see my little sister a 21 year old widow standing up at speaking at the funeral of her husband and how much she loved him and the peace that she is finding. Not yet whole but healing.

Love Amy

Oh, dear Luck, this write tugs at my heartstrings. Beautiful and poignant.

Healing indeed takes place, as we are never ever really left alone to cope with our sorrow. There is the Universal spirit of love sweeping around us whispering that separation is an illusion.

Thank you.

Love,

Luck... not whole but healing.... In my own life I feel incomplete and uncompleted and for that, there is no healing. :(
