They Say

©

Published: January 2015

They say I'm sorry for your loss
They say your heart will mend
They say you're in a better place,
and death is not the end.

They say you're reunited
with loved ones gone before.
They say that you'll be waiting
when I walk through heaven's door.

I feel their love in every word
of comfort they impart,
and know that each is spoken
from deep within the heart.

But all the words of comfort,
though kind, sincere, and true,
can't take away the emptiness
I'm feeling without you.

Will you put candles on my grave
So the first spark between us won't fade?
Will you put flowers on my grave
So you won't forget my scent?
You can't feel my body,
But you feel my soul.
One day our soles will unit
And we'll be together forever.

Your poem expresses what I want to scream! Nothing, no one, or no words can erase the pain of losing your soulmate. I lost the love of my life 5 weeks ago to cancer, sarcoma. I don't want to hear kind words. I only want him back. Thank you for speaking for so many of us.

I can relate to your poem a lot. Words of kindness are sincere, and I know they mean well, but at the end of the day you will be reminded of the loss. I lost my mother in 2015, and everyone asks how I feel, and I know they care. I tell them I'm fine, but it's just hard to be because the fact remains that she's gone.
