Then There Is Losing You

Sorrow sleeps against my window,

Condensing into a murky fog.

The verdant oaks that brought me joy,

No longer seek to please the heart.

Days of sun and restful smiles,

Have prematurely fled my path.

Most lovely flames have waned to dust

Much love has failed to come to fruition.

Should there be ache in forseen loss?

Should fated grief be mourned forever?

If losing you was preordained,

Why must I live in constant sadness?

  1. It’s the heart that needs to understand what mind already knew. Losing someone who one had thought would be a perfect love story is disappointing. Very well written. πŸ˜‡


      1. I agree, L. I guess deep down the heart always knows. But the mind tries to convince it otherwise. Whatever the case, it’s always hard to come to term with facts. πŸ˜”

    1. Thank you for your feedback, GG. I’m glad I could stir your mind. I struggle with answers to questions like these all the time. Ultimately, I turn to my yoga mat. πŸ˜„πŸ˜Š


    1. I’m so sorry to hear that, L. Some days are like that but I think the trick is to snap out of it. It takes a deliberate effort to push those feelings aside but I think it is the wiser (and kinder) thing to do. Pro tip – cheesecake! 😁 Sending you love and strength, always. 🌸🌺
