A poem from the heart! I burst into tears as I came to "that my true love traveled to a lonely place". I lost my dearest six years ago. I'm still grieving.

My heart hurts everyday. I saw my favorite cousin, my best friend shot and killed in front of me 2 weeks ago. His name is James "jimmy". This poem hit home.

December's Tears

Prepared to rest
lay still, my James
to become of the earth
to blend with the rain.
Mother Nature's gentle hand
had slapped me in the face
when I learned that my true love
had traveled to a lonely place.
Stars, never seen again
by his lovely eyes
His lips never touched again
despite my bitter cries.
Petals sleeping on the ground
marks the place my love is found
and when the cold wind sobs his name,
know my James is cold, but safe . . .
And though December's sun is gone,
in its place, his love shines on . . .

Wow is the only word to discribe it. I have lost three people I cared about in the past 10 months, one of which was my best friend. I've written many poems and read many as well, and this kind of described how I felt, only in a different type of relationship. It was very touching.
Gillian
