I Lost You...

©

Published: May 2015

I'm sitting here in my room, looking at your picture,
Wondering why you couldn't be a part of my future.
Uncontrollable tears stream down my face,
While my heartbeat starts to race.
Asking GOD why he took you from my life,
It was more painful than stabbing me in the heart with a knife.
I still needed you here;
You were the one to make everything so clear.
You are a part of me and I am a part of you;
When you died a part of me died too.
I never knew how hard it was to lose someone you love,
Until the day you went to heaven above.
Even though I can't see,
I know you're up there watching over me.
I miss you more and more every day,
And all I can do every night is pray.
In my heart you shall forever remain,
But right now there is only pain.
Lost in the world you left behind,
Until I'm with you, I'll always be lost in time.

I could relate to this the moment I saw it. My grandmother died not very recently, but I had a very strong relationship with her. I'd always go to her house to spend the night and just talk to her when I was young. But when I was told she had passed away, something was taken from me. An important part of me has been missing since that day. Sometimes I ask God why He took her from me. But I know that it is an unnecessary question because she is in a better place now. She is in heaven and that is the best place for her, and I only want the best for her. Sometimes I try to think back and remember what I last said to her and it breaks my heart that I cannot remember if I told her I loved her. I just wish I could see her now and talk to her, get her advice on how to get by at life, and tell her I love her. I would do anything to just have a day with her. Whenever I think about this, I start to cry. But this was very deep, and I understood every single line of it. This is absolutely beautiful.

I know how you feel. My adopted mom died, and I always blame myself for her death. I always pray to God and ask him why he took her and not me. I can't wait for the day when I can see her again, but it will get better for you. if I wasn't for my adopted mom I would never have gotten into writing poems like you. I lost my adopted mom 3 years ago, and I still always cry because she was the mom I have always wanted. I like to write poems in her honor, but I miss her so much and love her. She is watching over me and wouldn't want me crying over her, and she will always be my future. The thing you need to know is even though the person you loved died, they are still watching you and encouraging you to have a future and are watching you accomplish things in life.

This poem brought me tears, just thinking of my father who passed away a couple of years ago due to a brainstem stroke. The wording just reminded me of him and how I felt about him, knowing I'll never see him again.
