My Grief: A Poem about Losing A Loved One
Why? Cruel winds burn upon my flesh and swiftly stir upon my stream of tears
Your name, in gusts of anguish deep and dark as any night sky your gaze once graced
To exclaim without refrain, without a breath left within my soul,
You, your very essence sinks inside my heart, absorbed by a disbelief of truths sharp as a knife
To face life’s winter without a guiding light beside me held by your frame
To breathe this air of worlds we dare to bridge by faith, and not by sinful thoughts abide
Where are you now, when ripples spread, when tides recoil in fearful tumblings
When all around your face descends, enclosing time and honoured by the hope that you’ll appear
To me once more and I shall see your smile again.
