Without you...

               You’d been my strength and
               I’ve never imagined my life
               Without you.

                Whenever I felt lost and vulnerable
                Always found your embrace…
                To get solace in.

               We shared ramblings...
               ...The whole night
               Only to find it was already dawn.

               Shared laughter and togetherness.
               Bond of love increased with,
               Every sorrow and hardship.

               After you left me alone
               Solitude crept in my life,
               Piercing my lonely heart.

               I can’t forget the moment
               When you were departing,
               Breaking the promise of love.

               Your hand slipped away
               From my trembling grip
               Making me an incomplete soul.

               Again, the gloominess of night is...
               ...Shrouded with your thoughts,
               Propelling me to stay awake all night.

               Days are dreary without you.
               Every night seems like a thousand years,
               Evoking an endless twinge in my heart.

               If I could have just one wish,
               I’d wish to have you again
               Providing me bliss & a purpose.

               However I know this is impossible
               As you’re very far to come back
               Still, my love for you will stay eternal.

(P.S: It's just a poem, according to the prompts and my imagination, from the point of view of an elderly woman/man who lost her/his husband/wife after 50 years of togetherness.)
