Posted in In Dedication...


You take away my smile
The days and nights are colder
Knowing you are gone
Leaving me without a shoulder

To lean on when I’m weary
To depend on to catch me
‘Cause though I’m stronger than I let on
I’ll always want you beside me.

  1. This was really sweet and simple. Made me want to sing it. Very lyrical. However, I do not intend to negate the emotions behind it. Longings…so sweetly penned. Some of the best poetry are the simplest. You did very good Ruth.

    1. Thank you, for everything you’ve said. It’s like your “But I love your feet”. Love is simple, no matter how it goes, even if it becomes only its antithesis, as you’ve also said. But I know that is not the case here. We cannot hate each other. But love was not possible either.
