Tell Me Where You Are

"I have lost you -the pain is hard to bear
Do I have to go through life knowing you're not there?
 I sit here and remember all the lovely times we shared
   the talks- the laughter- of every one you cared.
 I am told the pain will ease in time and I will think of you without a tear
 but that will be impossible as I need to have you here.
You were the very world to me - my ever guiding star
 Just kiss me softly on the cheek and tell me where you are."

"Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break." ~William Shakespeare--- Poetry has always been able to move me to tears, moreso than any other medium of expression with the possible exception of music. My thanks to those who post these beautiful poems. They give us insight, and the realization that others feel as we often feel, even those with the remarkable gift of putting those feelings into words that rock the soul.---- Wave of sorrow, Do not drown me now: I see the island Still ahead somehow. I see the island And its sands are fair: Wave of sorrow, Take me there. -Langston Hughes
