Sad News

when you hear news so sad to say out loud
too painful to speak of
your mind wants to shut down
to stop, to just stop
as you try to think of something else
anything else
happy thoughts
better times
the sadness pushes through 
like a knife 
piercing your heart
the ache consumes you

    Oh, Betty, my heart goes out to you. Sad news does turn your whole being inside out and time and prayer is the only thing that eases the pain. :) God bless, love and hugs eve
