THE SILENCE OF A BROKEN HEART

The fear of losing you is real It’s in the countless daily moments Of a diagnosis still echoing in our ear A verdict forever stuck in our throat Maybe better to know but at what cost Trying to keep illness at bay Aggressive the counter attack Life never to be the same Dark thoughts still lurk uninvited As sometimes your eyes tear up With no detectable provocation And in the hush of night when all is quiet The silence seems unbearable Within the shadow of a broken heart So we strive to live each day As though life is the gift it is AP: Honorable Mention 2020 Submitted on August 5, 2019, for contest ONE IN FOUR sponsored by JOSEPH MAY - RANKED 3RD

Very touching poem, my friend. I agree that knowing, you pack more into every possible second... but I also know that it's still very hard sometimes, and bittersweet. My prayers are ever with you. *hugs*

Heartfelt and so often true, sadly. "Life never to be the same Dark thoughts still lurk uninvited" - absolutely true.

We do strive to live that way. Though sometimes it's difficult to believe, even adversity has its up side.
