Wither

by ianblackpoet

Before you had embraced my love

Merely to live was pain

But by the grace of god above

Light was destined now to reign

Through our time I knew you well

I gave my loving heart forever

You dragged me back from the brink of hell

You said we’d always be together

Your love, it seems, was not to last

And now I’m stranded, on my own

All joy and bliss locked in the past

I must wither all alone

You are more a part of me

Since you said you love me too

Than I myself could ever be

Because I am nothing without you
