All too soon we lose our love one and it seems forever that we question, Why.
Why, because we weren't ready. They were but we weren't.

All Too Soon
October, 19, 2011
By Rose Marie Rideout

They left us much too soon,
I can’t seem to understand why,
I think of them daily,
As I wipe tears from my eyes.
It makes me wonder,
Who’s turn will come too soon,
I feel a cool shiver come over me,
As I stare at the moon.
Darkness seems to fill my time,
Sadness steals away my joy,
I find myself deep in thought,
Questioning the whys.
Though I am surrounded with love,
I often thank our Lord above,
For all He has shared with me,
In all the love of friends & family.
I know we spend too much time on the past,
When the present is what we live for,
No time for sadness,
We don’t know what the future has in store.

How did I miss this one, Rose? Before posting this review I clicked on "become a fan" and found that I wasn't. ????? I used to be but some glitch must have knocked me out. So, so sorry, my friend. I'll do my best to catch up. Thank you for all your reviews and God bless.

In my mind, we think of the past times we shared with those who are no longer with us because we have no future with them. My future with those who have died is to one day join them in blessed everlasting eternity.

That is true Rose. But remember we are all dying every second of time. It is those who leave us that is so very remorseful. Very good write!

Heartwrenching and it is good to stop and reflect. It tends to give life more meaning even though it can cause sadness. Love it. Liz

I felt every line,'s difficult to deal with the loss of a loved one...they're always in our thoughts. Life is far too short to dwell on the past...Lovely poetry, my friend!

Life leaves all of us too soon; a very good incentive to make the most of today.

There's hurt and pain and loss here, Rose,
and those i understand well but i notice, too,
how you rally in the final lines and come to terms
with pain as best you can and have to as we all
have to...and as you say the future is a mystery.
Be strong!

Reviewed by Ed Matlack 10/19/2011
Well, if all those that have passed through the centuries were still here, we'd be one VERY crowded little planet...we'd probably be falling off the edge of the painful as it may be, we have to let go of a few, usually the good or so it seems, as it must be, because I am still here...;-) e

The loss of close loved ones as Mark says leaves a vacant spot in our hearts that is hard to fill, however the births of new loved ones in our lifes such as children, grand kids or new inlaws can often help fill those voids. Great job Cuz.
Reviewed by Mark Lichterman 10/19/2011
When someone passes away, to me, Rose, it seems like there is a black hole in my universe where that person used to be. My thoughts seem to constantly be with the memory of the person but, in time, though the thoughts become fewer and the pain passes. Beautifully warm words here, Rose.
Your friend; Mark
