The loss

Pain in my chest
Knowing I lost
Where do I start
How do I overcome the loss
Sadness dripping my eyes
Knowing I can’t overcome this pain
Know where to turn
How do I find my way
My heart just aches
The love that was there, but just hurting
All I have is memories
The love I have is true
Never forget the love
Always remember the good times
Knowing your not here by my side
Knowing you not picking me up if I fail
The loss will never be easy
Never fade
Loss will always be in the heart
Never forgotten.
