i die daily


i die daily

i never imagined
a life without her
for she was my life
and how could i possibly go on
without her . . .
but that was not how it worked out

i would have gladly
laid down my life
that she would live . . .  forever
but the choice was not mine
to make

ever since she went away
i have died daily
hoping to resurrect my self
to that place where
dreams smile
with a certain providence
upon our wishes
for that  . .
“Happily Ever After”
with White picket fences
and no worries
about such trivialities
such as

but Eden is not here
is it ?

we dream with Utopic expectations
where the sensation of Joy
only exists

who ever thought that life
would come to this
you have gone away . .  ahead
and i . . .
the living dead

i would have died for you
given the choice
but it was never offered
so in lieu
of enjoying
the presence of you
i die daily
