I know what my heart is like
Since your love died:
It is like a hollow ledge
Holding a little pool
Left there by the tide,
A little tepid pool,
Drying inward from the edge.

A tepid pool can have a sad little life of its own.
A wonderful little piece that describes perfectly how our hearts feel when losing a loved one for whatever reason.
