DEATH OF A LOVED ONE.

There are no deeds..no words to say..
to ease the pain you feel today..
The wound is fresh...and new and deep...
and cuts into your flesh..
This burning searing pain you feel
is all to real, for I too have known it's
depth..
With each new day as dawn returns
with each new falling raindrop...
the edges of the wound begin to close..
and as the edges close...
they encase your loved one
forever in  your heart
For although right now we feel
we've lost them..
they will be ours forever..
And one bright day you too will enjoy
the treasured memories
locked away for safekeeping.......nona

You have written beautifully about the grief we feel when we lose a loved one and the comfort we will find in the memories.  James

Nona~
To our Passion's family, I say


This touched my heart.
Still waiting for the 'edges' to close
on the loss of my sister.  Your words
give me comfort.

Welcome to Passions
Your poem is well done although it deals with a sad matter. My thoughts are with you.

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
