Epitaph

“you’re killing me….”
words that I hung in the air,
a prophecy that resonates through sleepless nights
my heart said goodbye to itself
that chilling evening in early August
how sacred the hidden treasure of a wife and mother
how broken the memories 
how haunting the path not taken

Thanks so much! Just now googled and found a place to put this poem out there. Not exactly the kind of stuff I could share on facebook. Your words message meant a lot to me!
