Nevertheless


I thought I lost you the other day

I dreamt I was standing by your grave

But you were only a few blocks away

But I lost you nevertheless


I thought I saw you the other day

But it was a stranger wearing your coat

The one I gave you on your birthday in May

But I lost you nevertheless


I thought I called you the other day

But I couldn't go through with it

Even if I missed you I know you´d say

I lost you nevertheless


I thought I got over you the other day

Got this feeling of relief in my chest

But even with the heartache at bay

I lost you nevertheless


I thought I lost you the other day

and you were saying it was for the best

But you were only a few blocks away

But I lost you nevertheless

Witnessing a loss
is hard
and this is done so kindly in your words
I guess after seeing the way you observe loss
maybe the other side is at loss

not you ......

You are simply beautiful :)
To love and lost only to rekindle... Beautifully thought out, this piece takes you through a brief moment in time and leaves you wanting... (nevertheless make the call)

A sad and touching poem, I like the different levels you went through in this write. The final lines really wrap this up tightly.
