No More You

Emptiness my only view.
You're presence felt.
As my emotions melt.
Our times together too few.

Life is harshly real.
At times I hate to feel.
Anything but numbness.
While I go about aimless.
Trying hard to deal.

I ask God to explain.
Why I'm to feel this pain?
The world goes on and on.
As if you were never born.
Where do I put the blame?

You were too young.
Your song never sung.
Death took you in the fall.
Hitting me like a wrecking ball.
My soul forever stung.

Nighttime brings a cruel scene.
When I see you in a dream
I wake to find in deep despair
The reality that your not there
Morsels of you I glean.

Bare myself as hopelessly flawed
I have to give it all to God
Allow Him to work His will.
To fix my soul, my heart to heal.
His wondrous works I applaud.

With my strength re-newed .
My preconception reviewed.
Tomorrow is but a wish.
dumping all my anguish.
The darkness is now eschewed.
