Dark Day

Words for a loved one that will be dearly missed

Today is much darker than yesterday 
You are gone no longer by my side. 
The nights and days we spent together 
Forever cherished as these live in my mind. 
You were always here always close to me, 
Giving me your love without reserve 
Eyes so blue the clearest sky would envy. 
Your devotion to me I did not deserve 
A face so beautiful you were as a painting. 

Body strong without fear always on call 
Almost like the queen’s guard so quick to maul. 
Many nights you kept me sane and warm 
Managing somehow to calm my inner storm 
You have come to know my every move 
The sound of my voice, my touch so smooth.

This day is dark for my heart is in pain 
I cannot describe this wretched ache. 
My chest is heavy and I fear cry more 
Even in my worst miseries or deepest sorrow 
My heart and soul have never been as sore 
And as I see your body cold, still and worn, 
I understand that it must have been your time. 
Your presence I will miss, your steps next to mine 
I will never find a soul as kind as yours, so noble 
Majestic, benevolent, loving and true 
As the tears in my eyes flow endlessly with no shame,
Farewell, my dear old friend I must bid you goodbye 
This is a dark day; nothing will ever be the same.
