Not in Vain

Not In Vain

Gone without a trace,
to go back where it's safe.
No one will see these tears upon my face,
I will keep them hidden, with my Southern grace.

With the tears I shed,
I feel so dead.
But I know I'm alive,
from these feelings inside.

I don't want to lose sight,
for what is right.
I'm at an all time low,
from letting you go.

I can't eat, I can't sleep,
all I seem to do is weep.
I will go through this pain,
to prove it's not in vain.

When you look at the moon,
No matter where you are,
think of the girl who loves you -
whether near or far.

None of us are perfect,
I know this to be true.
We all have choices,
it's what you ultimately choose to do.

Beautiful poem. Loved the 2nd verse a lot. Wonderfully described and told of loss of someone care about. Very emotional.

A most impressive poem, especially the second last stanxa is beauty and the central thought. You are a good poetess, flow, diction, thought, rhyhum, rhyme & beat, you take care of all that as a tradionalist.

This one is perfect and heartbreaking. To let go is one of most difficult things for me to do. You have chosen your words wisely and came with a great poem.

Very nice meggie. Such a mixture of emotions, it's like; chocolate an peanut butter, or; pickles, and ice cream........

i felt a punch in the gut half way thru, just so visceral, Meggie - most of us have been there, but to find the words with so much grace, that's not something just anyone can do - you shine, but then, i've always known that.

The process (and progress) of dealing with loss has the same kind of downward momentum intensity as the upward swing of elation when we fall in love or emotionally attach to someone or something. In some ways I guess it's all a balance... what goes up must come down? You captured the complexity and ultimate acceptance of this sadness in a beautiful way. Well done.
