His Light

His Light

A Poem by Mercedes Childers

He was the light of her world

The only light she could ever see

When times were tough,

And things grew rough,

He’d make it all seem easy.

He was the one she would run to

When nothing was okay.

Her heart he holds,

His arms were her home,

Forever together they would stay.

Then he grew apart as he fell no more,

And he finally let go.

Her world was gone,

Where did she go wrong?

She’s lost and dark on her own.

So on a paper she wrote

Her last words to the world.

“To my one and only

Who left me lonely,

You once made me the happiest girl.”

A sad tale written in the poetry. When a broken heart make death sweeter than life. Leave many to suffer. Nice ending to the excellent poetry Mercedes.

Mercedes, this is a well-crafted poem that artfully conveys how we often feel after a loved one betrays us or leaves without explanation. You certainly convey a sense of pain the reader can feel in this piece. You write with so much sincerity and humility. I look forward to reading more of your work. Well done!
