My Big World

My Big World

My world was never so big
then I looked for you
and you were gone
You walked into a thousand misty summers
and now
rooted to this spot
I wait
It's a private thing
Our secret, shared
in which all that is
and all that was
holds its breath
while I grieve
in my big world
where living without you
is like that hole you used to talk about
that could never be filled
a hole as big as the world 
and as empty

    Thankyou Anne Lise. I wrote this poem last year. It is about losing my daughter in 2008, your comments are much appreciated. Greta x
