Love In Mourning

Here is my latest poem which I called it "Love In Mourning". I started writing it long ago to get into a contest but then I stopped and I was back to it during the weekend and I was able to finish it yesterday. So enjoy :D

It was too soon for you to go
And to leave me here on my own
The home is empty, my whole life too
How am I supposed to face this alone?

The memories of us keep on haunting me
Pictures of us still hanged on the wall
Our names still carved on that pine tree
Every time I pass it by, my tears start to fall

I still remember the promises we have made
You said nothing would tear us apart
But, now you are gone and I am afraid
And nothing can heal my aching heart

It feels like yesterday since we have laid you in the ground
It was the hardest thing for me to face
I swear I thought that I sensed your scent all around
Alive I felt you were there, I looked around and all was an empty space

It has been a while since I passed by your grave
I wonder if the flowers I planted have grown
And if you ask why? Well I am no longer brave
I cannot cry anymore while kissing your name on the tombstone

So rest in peace oh young and my loved one
Angels in heaven will take care of you
Your eternal life has only just begun
And wait for me when my time is due

"Alive I felt you were there, I looked around and all was an empty space"

Space will always be empty, but your heart is filled with your loved ones, for there they live for ever.

Loved it very much .. thank you

Thanks. Beautiful sorrow sounds a good title and a subject for a future poem ;)
And try to put your feelings into words and see. Try it more than once and you will end up with a good poem I am sure ;)

Rawand:
Welcome to my blog :)
Space is only empty of what we can't see. And indeed loved ones may be gone physicially but their memories will remain.
Thank you.
