Each Day


Each day I watch the rising sun
Each night, the glowing moon
All time lays heavy on my mind
For you are gone too soon, too soon,
For you are gone too soon.

I count the days that pass on by
Which mark the changing time
But yet I cling to memories
Which tell me you were mine, were mine,
Which tell me you were mine.

It hurts to think that you are gone
When you were ever near
And now the world has lost its charm -
I loved you so my dear, my dear,
I loved you so, my dear.

Your name will rest upon my lips
For all my lifelong days
And I will hold your pictured face
As in your eyes I gaze, I gaze,
As in your eyes I gaze.

Remember me, remember me
If e’er your soul can know -
Down here beneath the shattered sky
I shall not let you go, oh no,
I shall not let you go.

    Your poem is beautifully honest and touching. Is there perhaps a beauty in sadness not found anywhere else? Not that we would ever wish to know this sadness but when it comes, perhaps it helps to feel it while remembering the one we lost - as you have done so well. (Report) Reply

    When you live with such loving memories pain and agony become part of your life.
    While reading your poem I was reminded of a beautiful Urdu couplet by my poet friend, which would translate as
    'In the beginning pain of separation was unbearable; Gradually it has become my companion in life.
    Lovely poem, Val. (Report) Reply

    So soulfully you have written the loss of love & the pain you feel, Valerie - it touched my heart. Only I can say true love is immortal, it will never go.
