A Poem: Without You

Love's broken chain, my furrowed brow;

My truce with fate forgets me now;

A lover's moon still laughs you fools -

To take a chance on me and lose.

So harder then to laugh than cry,

so harder then to live than die . . .

Without you.


Dedicated to every man or woman who has lost their spouse to cancer.
