My peace does not come easily today
My well-being has given place to just being
My thoughts keep me captive in my pain, and my once sweet memories have turned bitter
Leaving me sad and sadder
Today I’m desolate in my solitude and devastation
Like a visit from a family member unloved, this devastation must be tolerated for a duration.
Today I’m heart-broken and missing you
Even your tears.
I wait with long-suffering as my support
With love for you as my stronghold
And today. . . with pain as my companion.
