Anguish comes to me in the night,
     With deep sorrow, I always fight;
Tears sadly, I cannot repress,
          Grief tormented, I must confess.

Why do I have to live this hell,
     In sadness will I ever dwell;
My life is one full of unrest,
          Grief tormented, I must confess.

Ever, will I leave this lament,
     Let go, and live in the present;
In poems sorrow I express,
          Grief tormented, I must confess.

In a lovely cyber-world lost,
     And from poem to poem tossed;
I pen my weeping in excess,
           Grief tormented, I must confess.

And in gentle hands my words fall,
     Before I can fly, this girl must crawl;
Each kind word is a sweet caress,
          Grief tormented, I must confess.

I stand talking to the long past,
     Tombs call to me, haunting and vast;
In writing, I share my distress,
          Grief tormented, I must confess.

The healing nature of your words comes through somehow in the expression of grief. And so, I must always come back to this place and take it in from time to time. The hurt is always fresh, but expressed with kindness and sincerity. From all of us, thank-you so much for being here. I cannot emphasize that enough. You are a constant in this sub-universe of words and a healer for all who are suffering.

The way you express the touch of loss is with such care and love. We can not help but feel it. While I hate that this happened to you and wish it could be undone, your kindness and tenderness are such a beacon in this place. I can not praise you enough and salute you for being so strong in the face of it all. For all of us who have suffered death's impact and severe losses of sorts, let me thank you for being here for us and me. You are a spiritual guide in the sky by your example.
