       I posted this in another form on another website and got such great feedback that I think the new version is much improved. Would appreciate any further help.

    There must be more to living than dying.
    More than clocks on walls and
    The beat of my heart...
    Listen, it sounds all wrong,
    Like broken pieces falling away.

    I close my eyes and you are here-
    A scent, a tiny hand against my cheek,
    A memory worn thin from too much handling.

    Time blows through me-
    Winter wind through broken windows.
    It moans and whispers in the
    Empty corners of me.

    I wake, I sleep,
    I hear clocks ticking.
    They keep cadence with my heart,
    My new mantra,
    There must be more to living than dying.

      Wow, this is really great, it's not like anything I've read before, though it made me think of Thorton Wilder's "Our Town" because of the whole clock's ticking thing. ANYWAY, this was wonderful and I think anyone who has lost a loved one can relate, not entirely since every loss is different, but still. Wonderful. Fabulous. Keep writing.

      You have a fine look at things. The stanza beginning "Time blows..." is excellent - as is the whole poem. I will look for your work in the future.
