Getting past the pain

Only when a life has ended
And the sorrow begins to fade.
Can the human heart be mended
And walk into the future unafraid.
Blindly we stumble along
Looking for something to fill the day.
Trying so hard to stay strong
I find myself on my knees to pray.
Why can't I heal my heart myself
Why do I cry when I think of you?
The pain is unbearable in and of itself
I wish there was more that I could do.
I will never forget your life on Earth
Or the impact you made on my life.
I begin to start my spiritual rebirth
To help mend the hurt and end the strife.
I need to move on and get past the hurt
So I can continue to live and grow.
And until I'm buried in the dirt
I harbor a sorrow only I will know.

good job

The emotion and concept are very nice. There are a couple rough spots with rhythm and phrasing, also the mood of the pieve goes from objective to 'we' to 'I'. Sticking with one or the other, such as in the same perspective as the first few lines, can unify the poem.
