Away They Take

Away they take my silver~

Away they take my gold~

I have not enough in me~

To grasp all in a hold.

As the loss has occurred~

I want forever to mend~

Yet they discard my~

Jewels like there is an end.

The bereavement has not healed~

They add more burden to my soul~

Plundering my memories~

So callus and bold!

The demise of my treasured memories~

They do clearly steal~

The pain I feel~

To them matter not~

Yet to me so very real.

Should mortality be not in objects~

I know logically~

Yet too early are these cherished treasures~

Taken from me.

The collapse of my worldly belongings~

Still hurts for real~

I struggle to block this out~

Yet tragic attacks I feel!

Away they take my silver~

Now I hear whispers~

My prized home they will shed~

Like it means nothing to them~

In addition casting me too~

Off with the homestead.

What is the secret that they have~

That takes sentimentality out of~

The mind? ~

Which in me~

I can not seem to thrust aside~

Circumstances only create my spirit to run and hide.

Change with death~

Achens me~

Throbbing dread overwhelms me~

Yet they continue to kill my security~

They are a rolling charge~

Running over me!

Oh~

How I search for peace~

While violated I squeal~

No one hears my calls~

No one seems to care.

This reminds me of so much right now, both in context with what you are saying and not so much so, but similar. Sad, but definitely worth remembering.

shanmarie and Vellur such a nice surprise to find you both here this morning... Yes I had to express this additional type of loss, that others around me do not seem to be bothered by and seem to me to be rushing things like vultures on a prey. But maybe I would procrastinate forever to hold on to what is left...who knows... Thank you both for your kind comments.

Lisa, I just love your style of writing!...when someone intrudes into a home they take so much more than mere property.

They take away one's peace of mind, the sense of privacy, they invade you and nothing will ever be the same, but the worst thing is when it happens so often it becomes the norm.

Great emotive writing.

FOR OUR TROUBLED TIMES OF LOSS

Philippians 3:13-14

New International Version (NIV)

13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
