FOR A MOMENT

For a moment
all the lights went out
and the melodies stopped.
Life lost its rhythm
as hearts took another tune,
pumping to a different beat –
the beat of loving you,
missing you,
and the pain,
the pain of losing you.

For a moment
all the lights went out,
and my breath failed
as I could not imagine
a life without you.
Even breathing labored me
by remind of life
Life? The very you lost.

For a moment
all the lights went out.
I could not see ahead
and I wished to turn,
run back into your arms
and the comfort therein.
Oh…. I miss your love

For a moment
all the lights went out
and in ensuing darkness
life lost its luster.
colour faded
from all things beautiful
tinting the gloom of my misery.

For a moment
all the lights went out
but only for so long
before you became a light
that shines down on me
ever watching out for me.

$$Margaret, I may have said it once or twice that I love you. I may have shown it a few more times than that. I wish you could see me now, since the extent of my sorrow at your departure may as yet be the best proof of how much I loved you. I said it, even showed it; I hope you heard and believed me.

Mon souer, requiescat in pace (RIP).$$
