Early Mourning

Early Mourning

 

Walking as If in a dream,

During those early months.

Wrestling with regret

And things left unsaid.

Crying in public

And feeling the pain,

Of a life never finished,

Incomplete and unseen.

Fighting the shock,

Of a decision so cruel.

Coming to grips ,

With the shattering of a dream.

Waking up empty

And hearing my screams.

Going through lfe,

One day at a time.

Picking up pieces ,

Of a broken life.

Getting through holidays,

And all of the strife.

Remembering your life,

And saying goodbye.

Wow. You really nailed it, all of the emotion that loss brings. That is wonderful. It might be hard for people who have not gone through it, but you are very eloquent. Nice.
