Goodbye My Precious

I set you free

I tried so hard,
to win your heart,
I gave it my all,
right from the start.

I guess you didn't,
want that too,
I felt your resistance,
through and through.

So I moved on,
then you came back,
for another go,
to get on the right track.

My soul felt heavy,
for this buried hurt,
cannot be separated,
from cold dirt.

I set you free,
to live and learn,
deep true love,
you have to earn.

It takes respect,
trust and forgiving,
loyalty and smiles,
the same joint vision.

Goodbye my precious,
may you find your one,
to my dreams on the horizon
every mile I run.

When You Lose a Life

missing their touch

Most of us who have suffered the great loss of a precious loved one, may indeed connect to the following poem. 

I want you to know that I feel you and I truly understand the deepest hurt losing a loved one can bring.

WHEN YOU LOSE A LIFE

When you lose a life,
you loved so much,
absence of hugs,
missing their touch.

You grieve their heart,
you once embodied before,
many sleepless nights,
craving them more.

An invisible pain,
that never goes away,
so lost without them,
a hate for each day.

No one shares,
the hurt in you,
life feels numb,
purposeless too.

But know their presence,
lives in your soul,
a bond so strong,
making you whole.

Believe they stand,
right by your side,
giving you energy,
watching with pride.

They are your candle,
giving you light,
they are your blanket,
comforting you at night.

They listen to your whispers,
guide your inner thoughts,
solving your problems,
untying the knots.

So remember their smile,
laughter and glow,
bringing you solice,
when you feel low.

Know that their spirit,
embraces your love,
forever your star,
shining from above.
