    she silenced my lips
    and sealed my heart
    for what seemed like
    an eternity
    because
    after she left
    I didn’t have anything
    to say of importance
    there was no one
    to speak tenderness to
    and no one to share
    a private joke with

    I couldn’t even say
    grace…right
    so use to thanking
    God for the hands
    that prepared
    the food I was about
    to receive for the
    nourishment of my body

    after she left I
    couldn’t feel anything
    my well ran dry
    there was no
    symmetry, no beauty,
    no poetry

    without her
    there is no one
    and
    no way
    I can honestly say “I love you”

    raheem,

    this is so touching, yet sad
    your thought so deep and
    shared by many others
    who have lost love

    :eek:
