You Were Not Just A Name

I heard the words  then stood with a breathless stare. There was no time no space or air. My beating heart stilled and I felt like I wasn’t there. As time moved on I was forced to live knowing you were gone. I pushed myself everyday to keep up with having to live a new way. The empty place I found myself in was just starting out and it’s had no real end. There is nothing  I can do since then not even prayers can bring you back to me again. Believe me when I say I think about you every day and life for me will continue on this way. You were mine  for so many years I still need more time and to shed more tears. When Heaven opens its gates for me I pray you will be the first I’ll see. Until then I’ll keep you close as can be for not even death can steal away this much love from me.

One of the best lost love poems I have read in a long time. Not overly flowery or sweet. Just a beautiful statement of the facts. WE MISS THEM.

Eulogies are difficult to write, more because others can't know the dearness of the person as can the poet. So the emotion must be gauged with very light telling. You do this well and in that respect bring in your reader to a much closer empathy. A little more detail about some experience with them might make it even better. JCH
