Love and laughter, forgotten faces
But the memory of Daddy standing tall

The aftermath,
Different in each eyes

The longing for answers,

Diamante– Love, Loss

Waiting, writing, whispering

For one family
To bear…not to share
In the shaded bitterness
Of my suger-free
mourning Coffee
I numbly sip, sniff and stir
