In The Silent Night

I am a writer of words and it has become my life, my safe harbor away from living; oh, I found my writing skill quite early, and childhood grief became poems. Later, I worked as a nurse and saw death daily, and held many withered hands 'till a last breath; so death and I know each other well, and this dark angel in time has taken everyone from me. for they are all names cut deep into cold stone, and my grief has no bounds; so, I write the sorrow I keep in my heart, alone in the silent night . . . . ___________________________ August 1, 2020 Poetry/Verse/In The Silent Night Copyright Protected, ID 20-1275-022-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the contest, STRAND COMPLETELY NEW (16) sponsor, Brian Strand First Place

Congratulations on your win. You always write so beautifully. The only good thing about death is that heaven is waiting. Have a wonderful day writing away. Hugs...............

Good morning Constance, It's those left alone that are touched deepest by the silence. Somewhere their smiles remember a dear heart. Very fine Verse to find today.
