another day
Another day, without my loved one here. Another day of sadness, but can no longer shed a tear. Another night of wrestles sleep, the dreams are so disturbing. Another night of wrestling, of tossing, and turning. Another day slips swiftly by, it has drifted into a year. Another day this addiction, has somehow commend eared. Another day,I feel, a part of me has died. Yet somehow in this zombie state, I try to stay alive. Another day, I awake, for the sun has risen. For most, it is filled with promise. To me it is a prison. Another day, I try, and keep my head and hopes held high. Another day, I pray and ask, "Lord is my loved one still alive?" Another day, has come, and night will surely wait. The moon has come, along with it, the dreadful thoughts I hate. My dearest loved, my darling one, making the most painful of mistakes.

I know this life you speak of in your poem. 

For the most part (not always), I have learned to quit waiting on something to happen in order for me to be happy.  And strangley enough, when I found happiness and pleasure in life again, my addict began to realize that my world, and the world in general, did not revolve around him.

I think you have come so far in this journey.  Don't ever give up on your loved one.........or yourself!
