About the Poem

This poem was written when I had just lost two people; One a dear surrogate-mother, to death, and the other a beloved friend, to a destroyed relationship. I was bereft at the losses all at once, with no way to reverse the causes of the losses. This poem has become the anthem for all the losses suffered since.

This is such a great poem. I can hardly keep from crying when I read it. It brings back memories of the loved ones I have lost in the past. I love this poem.
I am Misty's husband.Of course I'll vote for her!


Within this burdened breast
lies a heavy saddened heart,
this weight tortures rest
of it you were a part.

Now torn from my grasp,
forever it would seem,
this loneliness to never lapse
so empty have I been.

Once more, your embrace I need
to dispel this wretched grief.
From it I must be freed,
with your compassion my relief.

Come back and take my hand
to comfort and to hold,
end my devastation, if you can,
and soothe my aching soul.
