Death of a Loved One

Silently it entered like a cold touch

Feelings awakened were too much

It hunted, it sought, it found

Dragging its prey down to the ground

We prayed for it to leave us alone

And begged it to not take what we own

In it crept and touched all of our lives

Brothers, sons, daughters and wives

The ache we feel

Is all too real

It took our loved one too quickly

The journey handled too cruelly

We didn’t have time to reminisce

We picture all the times that we will miss

We wish we could have more time

But the absence is felt with every chime

The days ahead will be rough

The pain and tears will be tough

Cruelly it entered and cruelly it left

Leaving us to wallow in feelings of bereft
