Without You.....

The void deep inside my soul, where the sky meets the sea
Cloudless shape of lace envelopes every trace of you
Standing on the precipice of life, nearly touching death without you
Each smell of every season, gives memory to reason

The ocean of life looks scary without you
The storm passes, life becomes worth the wait
Sometimes I snatch a glimpse of you
Your gone again, too late.

Without you nothing seems the same,
The burning sun, refreshing rain
Where is your boat on life’s seas?
I’m waiting safely in harbour
Come back to me.

Even for a moment which will never be enough
a year or an eternity, without your gentle smile
I trace the gloss upon your picture
for just a little while.

Some days I am strong, I feel like I belong
Today I am lost without you.
We had plans I now need to rewrite my story
Just for the glory
Of being without you.

    this is truly beautiful Angel. I too know grief and in this I feel the ebb and flow of the tides of grief, without which we struggle to survive, as grief is such an overwhelming war of emotions. so many beautiful lines – Standing on the precipice of life, nearly touching death without you, such a powerful line, this gifts me the imagery of a quaking child standing alone on a knife edge, too frightened to move either way, so so powerful. beautiful poem, beautiful image, thank you x

  • Thank you so much for this deep feedback you went into the poem and emotions as I intended…means a lot angelx

    Oh I can so relate to this piece Angel – especially that last stanza. There are days when the loss just stretches out endlessly before us and in that huge expanse of time, we lose our courage, our strength. Then we do feel lost – adrift without love to anchor us. But then on other days, our strength returns, thank the Good Lord. Beautiful work Angel.

  • Yes Lianne what a difference a day makes in the life of a poet/ress smile;))
