Spiraling down
Into a dark place
Too deep and too cold
I can’t see your face

Too soon, too abrupt
To be taken from me
I can’t stop the tears
Too hard to believe.

You stood there alone
So vital, so strong
What happened? Please tell me
What could have gone wrong? 

Life can be brief
So fragile, so cold
Before you can blink
You’ve lost all control.

The days come and go
The nights linger on
No sleep to be found
Since you have been gone.

Looking for hope
A reason, a sign
They say it will come
Just give it some time.

    1. I’m so sorry for the losses….in your family. Sending y0u hugs and healing energy! I do think…that time helps. They say that grief is something you don’t get over, but that you can get through. Blessings! 💙.
