Beloved hearts


When the time comes for loved ones to pass
Sorrows run deep, rethinking the past
What we could have or should have done
Before this loss of a beloved one

I can not believe they are actually dead
Things uncompleted things left unsaid
If only I could have known before
I wanted to do oh so much more

Now as they lay there forever at rest
Thoughts in my mind of all their best
Remembrance of a smile, a final kiss
Always shocked it ended like this

Memories of the happiest times
Colliding with the loss in our minds
Thinking I can’t go on I can’t survive
What would they say if still alive?

Would they want me to go on in sorrow?
Suffering through all my tomorrows
Wishing for me to live life in grief
I know better that’s not their belief

Nevermore to dwell on this doom
That I may know joy again soon
From this earth we all must part
We still live in your beloved heart

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
