Without You

Published: January 2008

The days without you are lonely,
The nights without you are cold,
But even though you are gone now
That burning passion will never grow old.
Sometimes I cry myself to sleep at night ,
Just knowing that you are gone, but it makes
Me feel better knowing that you are peacefully at Home.
Your body lays at rest now,
It's Harder than I thought,
Just knowing you are
Gone for good, and thinking it's all my fault.
Time will have to take its course now,
For There's nothing left to do.
Just always remember that I still care and that I will
Forever love you.

I lost my fiance to epilepsy 2 weeks ago, and it hurts so much. We have a 4-month-old son together. This poem tells exactly how I feel.

This poem brought tears to my eyes. My husband died from a seizure disorder a little over a week ago, and I slept through the seizure this time. When I awoke he was already gone, so I do feel like it's my fault in a way. This poem really hit home. I'm going to use it for his memorial service this weekend. It's everything I couldn't say.
