Friends and family inevitably cross,
When do we ever get over the loss?
Years go by, and it still pulls at the heartstrings,
Bittersweet memories and longing stings,
How long does that would take to heal?
How long must I endure the loss I feel?
Death and time are but a thief,
And it’s us who have to deal with the grief,
I’m beginning to think I’ll always feel that pang,
I abhor death and its poisonous fang,
Is it possible to find emotional peace?
Or does grief and loss have no release?
