Wow! Exquisite from the title through the final word. The despair and anguish of the speaker pour from his soul. This phrase touched me, "The hope grows cold within my heart -- And music flees my soul…" This is so reminiscent of the Psalms (and Lamentations).
This is an excellent rendition of a lament with no hope. I'm glad that our hope is secure in Christ who gained the victory over death for us.

Very well-written tragedy of the human soul.
Powerful message in rhyme.

A cry from the depths of the heart - an amazing and wonderful poem. Thankyou.
This touched my heart. There have been many days when the feelings from this poem could be my own.

Your poetry is somewhat legendary on this site and I can see why. These words flow so naturally and impart such deep emotion. I believe you will, once more, inspire and teach many of us here!
Impressively artistically grandeur!

A beautifully written expression of those times when it seems our fervent prayers are not heard. It reminded me of C.S. Lewis's writings after the death of his wife. Heartfelt and real--well done.

So glad that you are back in the weekly challenge--and yes, I agree with the one who said you are somewhat of a legend at FW. This poem was raw emotion, stirring and heartfelt.
