When Someone You Love Is Gone



Separated and lonely you feel a deep despair.
Intuited, it's only a murk you need to share.

With every morning sunrise a warm greeting was known.
Evening light met it's demise as sweet "goodnight" was shown.

Hand-in-hand and side-by-side you walked along the way.
The soul secrets, undenied, you never did betray.

Found together here and there, united was your scene.
You have breathed communal air in each daily routine.

When someone you love is gone there is a missing heart.
It is hard to carry-on once you've been torn apart.

Yet a connection remains in spirit memory.
You meet beyond earthy plains, metaphysically.
