When you find that perfect someone
That isn’t quite so perfect
They make you feel
Like you finally have a ‘place.’
They make you realize
Home is not a house
It is in the eyes
Of that person you love.
When you have loved someone so long
They feel like they are a part of you;
Like you could not live a day
Their presence requires no accolade
Because as long as they are ‘there’
All is right with the world.
When you lose someone you have loved for years
You feel that part of you
Being ripped from deep inside
The core of your being.
It makes you feel trapped and lost
Confused and angry
Hurt and betrayed
Alone and afraid.
When you try to go on with your life
You feel like you are betraying the love
And betraying the memory
Of someone wonderful.
So you don’t allow a day to go by
Without thinking of them
Without speaking of them
So nobody forgets a part of you has died.
