The Web Poetry Corner - Ron Bliss - Death of a Wife
Death of a Wife
When I arise in morning's cold gray shroud,
I bear this loneliness, as best I can,
Three months have passed since you have gone away,
Your going I will never understand.
When I step out the world sings about me,
But the song within my heart is very sad.
I cannot bear to walk this life without you,
Your love was all the love I ever had.
When I return to solitude in afternoon,
My company is shadows on the floor,
I while away the hours thinking of you,
If you could just return, how I implore.
When daylight dies and darkness fills my room,
It cannot match the darkness in my heart.
I lay me down to sleep and pray to God,
That we will not, forever be apart.
The days go by so slow, they seem to linger,
My life is like a void one cannot fill,
My sunshine disappeared and all is gray now,
And happiness within my life is nil.
