~ Pieces of You, of Me

by A. L. O'Prunty

~ Pieces of You, of, Me

.
There is no time limit to grief

Just shock, horror, disbelief

And “well doers” seek a smile

Insisting grief is but a little while

But this cannot possibly be true;

The loss so great, left? Pieces of me, of you

Shattered, scattered pieces, all so consuming

And Time is no friend, but foe, amongst the dead, the living

So let the mourning mourn, long as they must

They’ve been caught in reality of “Ashes to ashes, Dust to dust”

And Life never ore to be the same

Yet, the mourners good memories shall sustain

Death is so finale.

  1. Give them their peace yes but do not allow them to feel alone in such matters.

  2. Pieces of you,
    as death lurks around the corner.
    Love this poem, almost started crying…

  3. Dear Ladyliterati, You have masterfully described the experience of those who have lost a Soulmate through death or to other forces. It is difficult to expect those who have never experienced this to understand the overwhelming nature of the grief. The closest I have seen is a Mother who has lost their child and has to bury them. That is a memory that lives for the rest of their lives! Time may heal the wounds but the scars remain on the heart and from time to time the pain and/or memories return. Bravo!!!! Please come visit me! See my post “Thanks for Leaving Me”
