Words of grieving

My Light Went Out

by Candace Nola

My light went out last night, faded into blackness, shattered by despair and sadness.
One last ember flickered and burned, what the cause was would be hard to discern.

One last word from a loved one.
One last tear, shed and done.
Last heartbreak, past mistakes.
Lost hope, innocence and dreams.
Lost cries and silent screams.

My light went out last night, no surprise, from my cheek, from my eyes. Warmth fled my heart and left my soul, sadness swallowing me, leaving me cold.

Love does not live here, never has it lingered long.
Some of us, in love, don't belong.
My heart is now sheltered, deadened and dark.
My soul, cold and weary, no spark.
My light went out last night,
left me weeping in the dark.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
