The deeper the love, the greater the loss... How would it feel to find your soulmate - only to lose her? I pray that I never find out...

Death Claimed My Love

My story is a tragedy
Be prepared to cry
They say time heals all
But that is a lie

I searched my whole life
And I finally found
The one meant for me
Love and joy did abound

How quickly that changed
One ill-fated day
Death claimed my love
Death stole her away

Maddened by grief
Consumed by my sorrow
She was my future
Now I have no tomorrow

I stare at her picture
I long for her touch
I can still smell her
I miss her so much

I pick up my gun
And contemplate death
What use in living
When I feel so bereft

But life is a gift
And I haven't the right
So I put down my gun
And weep through each night

I mourn for her daily
There is no relief
My soul is tormented
My heart filled by grief

My life without meaning
No feelings but pain
Death claimed my lady
I can't love again

My bedmate is rage
My friend, misery
I live for my death
Cause she's waiting for me

Your poem touched me and you were right i did cry. i know what its like to just want to lay down close your eyes and die. a feeling of nothingness nothing matters or never will. sorry for you loss. but im sure she wouldnt want you to be unhappy so live your days as if each one was your last and when the time comes for you to be together again it will happen. good luck with your girl for when you do passover to heaven or whatever else you may belive in. God bless

very moving and one of the best poems i've read in a long time nice work
Pedrito
This poem is very beautiful, I have not yet experienced the loss of a loved one like you have but I sure have experienced the gift of life that only God can offer. He heals all wounds and all your pain and sorrow he takes away if you would only give your life to him. Jesus loves you! All things happen for a reason. Give yourself to him and you will suffer no more.
Lynda
This is a beautiful, yet tragic poem. I lost so many loved ones in my life. I lost my small son, and his father. I lost my sister and grandmother just recently. I feel such sympathy for the author, and pray that he finds happiness in his life to keep going on. God bless

My boyfriend, the most beautiful, gentle, and sincere man I've ever known. died on September 29th, 2002. He had just finished playing (bass guitar) at a benefit concert. He set his guitar down, and collapsed. I ran to him and he died in my arms. I can relate to every word of this poem.
