She died in my arms, yet alone at the last

If you ever feel
Upon your lonely face
A soft dying breath
Realise that it is the final gasp
Of your lover
As she perished alone and in tears
O the memory of such sweet torment
Will pulverise my soul evermore

In a sense you are correct, but one can be alone and accompanied at the same time if you are unaware of the company. I shall consider amending the title.

you are saying, but maybe you could make it clearer, if that is what you intend. ~ Geezer.

So I think this is so dramatic your imagery is an opera fabulous.

however I totally agree with Geezer that you need to make it clearer, of course we are alone when we die even if we are in someone's arms. However in this poem it doesn't work as well as it could.
You could stretch your thoughts on this, we are a workshop so that's why we can come along and give our views of what we see,
Maybe you could say
As she perishes in her last tears
She makes her next journey alone

Some thing like that, i see for you it is particularly important that the readers knows she is alone so I hope I have helped give some idea.

You also use sweet torment, most interesting, an opera indeed

Perhaps it's the title that could be changed to something like
sweet torment.

Thank you...Teddy
