NO TIME TO EVEN SAY GOODBYE

A lonely place A deep black hole A bottomless chasm ~ I fall There is no air I cannot breathe My heart My soul In deep despair My deepest thoughts I cannot share I isolate inside A place to cry A place to hide I wear a mask In case I’m asked ‘Are you okay’ ‘Yes fine’ I say My heart My soul In deep despair All alone inside my grief I cannot burden others They shalt not know just how it feels I pray they never will Each day I try to carry on But it’s so hard Now you have gone My heart My soul In deep despair…
A sunny day A Friday Your soul soared high I felt it pass So sudden ~ So fast ‘Why’ I asked ~ No time to even say goodbye ~

I know what it is like to not want to burden others with your pain, dear Ann. I hope the writing helps you. I for one am glad you are able to share by writing to lessen some of the ache of loneliness. That's what friends are for. Beautiful words, my friend ~ John

Thank you dear John, for your understanding and words of comfort, which I really appreciate. Yes in a way I do find it cathartic by writing my thoughts down ~ my poetry is what is keeping me going as I can escape into another world. With kindest thoughts Ann xx

We never get to say good-bye. And if we do we second guess it, thinking it was not "good enough". Death is such a shock. You have written a beautiful poem. I hope it is cathartic for you, Ann.
