A TREASURE CHEST OF POETRY MUSINGS
Parents are not meant to outlive their children and to lose one surely is one of the worst griefs we can suffer. Your plaintive pain is felt here and my response is great. Time takes away the acuteness but never washes away the yearning and the loss.Sending you peace and healing in this season and for the new year. Gay @beachanny
oh my - this touched deeply - i could feel your heart in this and just don't know what to say..
I have never read or felt the intensity of such grief before. I pray for your relief.Michael
Thank you Gay. Time indeed heals, they say but for some the wound stays in there forever.
Thank you Claudia. That you could feel the pain too is enough...
Thank you Michael. Your prayers will help a whole family..
Very very touching poem. Brought me close to tears. The grief and pathos is unmistakably very close felt and I could feel it too. Shail, it is a reminder that there is so much we do not know about the seemingly-happy-people we meet everyday..."My pack of cards has come crumbling downEven as He deals a new pack elsewhere!"How beautiful these lines are!
Thanks Smita. I agree. We are not what we are from outside. How much emotion we hold back, only the person knows.
Intense, grievous rush.
Your poem tugs at the heartstrings. Very well expressed. Can feel it.
sad is not the right word but I can think of no other at the moment. your metaphors of grief were beautifully expressed. I wish you love and peace this holiday season and always, Shail.
Thanks Adam. I am glad that the poem could move you so...
Thanks Sheila. I could find no other way than this composition to express pain.Glad the poem touched you so.....Wishing you peace too.
this cut hard and deep....my wife lost her brother and the pain for her parents was the worst i had ever seen...he was their first born son...as others say the parent does not want to or expect to outlive their children...as a poem this was wonderfully expressed and written...thanks for sharing...all the best pete
Thanks Peter for sharing too. Death is terrible when least expected and when it takes away your child. Although we know that it is a final reality in all our lives but as you said, when people outlive their children, then their pain is indeed hard, very painful.
