Pain of Losing Family


Pain of Losing Family

Son brother and future father

We are born we live we die

There is no other order.


Daughter sister and future mother

We love we cherish we strive

For family and no other.


We wish we made things right

We regret the past and try to look to the future

But memories of the past seem to stain.


To think what it would be like to watch our loved ones leave

We know the pain of being left behind

And we know what the future could hold.


The pain of losing a son, brother, or father

The pain of losing a daughter, sister, or mother

What greater pain is there?.  No other.

I agree completely. This loss leaves a hole in your heart that no one can repair.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
