An old, familiar pain.


The feeling of a heart riven with pain,

is with me today, yet again.

Grief is an agony so, so strong,

it leaves you weak and feeling wrong.

Tears make my eyes sore and dim.

Yet is my sorrow for me or for him?

The funeral’s for those who are left behind.

His release was just and more than kind.

Some day it’ll be our turn to step from life to death.

It’s not far away, just the width of a breath.
