I am still seeking an explanation
For your sudden departure from this life.
The world lost a beautiful, caring person
I lost my true love, my soulmate, my wife.
Sleep provides refuge when my lonely day ends
And rest for a body upon which it greatly depends —
Only a temporary reprieve for a heart that will not mend.
Because each dreary morning brings
An emptiness anew
For every time I wake up
I remember there is no you.
Like a cruel, daily ritual
I beg, “God, grant me this one miracle”
But alas upon truly awakening
I realize there is nothing anyone can do.
Because this is real and I have been left here
To endure another day in a life where
There is still no you.
