Soul: Lost & Found

Image Source: DeviantArt

I come here and sit alone
I can see nothing nor feel
My soul is lost somewhere
I don't know if I can heal

How could the world be so cruel
Snatched you away so soon
I am lost in this loneliness
As I await impending doom

I feel completely hollow inside
I have no purpose to live
Everything around pierces me
I have nothing left to take or give

Just when I was about to give up
Something held me back tight
I do not know what exactly it was
Yet it kept me up all night

Then the reality finally struck
You were now breathing inside me
Cocooned and safe inside my womb
A piece of you that now I could see

Destiny has played its game again
I now await your presence 
Our child brought back my soul
Enveloped truly in your essence

I no longer feel lonely now
The life inside me keeps me alive
I feel your love all over again
Helping me breathe and survive
