How do I face the new dawning,
With an emptiness ne'er dreamed,
How can the sun shine another day,
When living is not an effort so deemed?
Why does nature continue to grow,
Showing colors so loved by you,
The grass should wilt and not flourish,
Death is ebony; void of life-loving hues.
Trees branch out and leaf each day,
Rain quenches the thirst of flora,
Sunlight gives substance for growth,
Yet death has stolen love's aura.
My heart is cold, emotions frozen,
Tears have ceased their continual falling,
Harshness has replaced gentle softness,
Screams in the night instead of love's calling.
Cover not the grave of my lover,
Let me journey too in the darkness,
I can't live without you my darling,
Facing a world filled with aloneness.
How can I go on without you,
Life has no meaning with you gone,
I have no need of tomorrow,
For my heart has turned into stone.

I have written this by special request.
May this heart find a brighter God filled day.
Death is hard but God gives us life eternal.
The grave hath no power over us and there
Will be new tomorrows if we only allow God
To control our lives.
