Look to Tomorrow

by Steven
(Perth, Western Australia)

I reached over last night
No one was there
My bed is so empty
My life is so bare

I stuggle each day
To keep it together
That this could happen
Imagined, I never

We promised each other
Til death do us part
It wasn't your choice
It's broken my heart

I've little to hope for
No more to give
Everything's gone
I don't want to live

I'm too old to change
Too young to die
Without you beside me
I've no strength to try

But like you my love
I don't get to choose
I must live out my life
Win, draw or loose.

I miss you so much
My pain runs so deep
I try to be strong
But continue to weep

Goodnight my love
I'm back off to bed
Another cold night
By myself lay ahead

But I'll remember our good times
And look to tomorrow
And pray that one day
It might ease my sorrow

I too write poems to this effect. My Rock states just that thing.I go to bed knowing for an instant that my love will be there but then knowing he won't be. I told my friend that the thing I miss most is just his "presence". He was ill but he was there and now he's not. I understand your feelings and wish I could do more for you then let you know there are others of us out here who feel like you do. GOD bless you and help you with your pain.
