(Usually, it's at night when I miss my wife the most. She passed a little over four months ago and still the sleep comes uneasy.)

Another night is falling;
Soon the shadows will grow long.
Then the beast will come a’ calling,
Singing his baleful song.

 
Pretending not to hear him,
I turn away in open shame.
My heart knows something’s missing,
But it will not be the pain.

 
The ravenous beast grows hungry!

He growls; he moans; he screams.
I’ll cling to thoughts more sunny
‘Till he violates my dreams.

 
The morning won’t come soon enough;

But the tears will surely come.
I’ll endure the beast’s relentless bluff
‘Till the night is finally done.

A brilliant LIGHT is soon approaching
for HIS bride. I am truly sorry for your loss.
Your poem is moving and reflects a wisdom
that most do not possess
