Reflection of Grief

Silence
Uncomfortable
Eerie in heaviness
Weighted in screams
Echos through the halls with

Grief
Overwhelming
Bitter with guilt
Chased by memories
Ladens every minute of

Life
Effervecent
Fragile in nature
Lived to the fullest
Snuffed in a blink by

Death
Ungracious
Fickle harvester of life
Feared by survivors
Brings eternity through

Faith
Everpresent
Balm to the spirit
Unshaken by tragedy
Gives peace to those left behind


(This is an older write that I wrote after a student was killed in an accident several years ago. Our school had another tragedy when a student collapsed from a brain aneurysm in class this week, and was taken off life support the next day_10/2. This still fits better than anything new I could have written.

Thank you Emily for leaving your Faith as a beacon for others.)

So sad Jan. I can't fathom one of my children taken before me. Beautifully written.

I cannot either, Tim. She was an only child, and I really can't fathom it. It's just a sadness.
