Loved One’s Lament
I feel cold rain drops splashing upon my skin.
It dampens my mood within.
These liquid drops falling heavy from the sky,
Match the tears that wet my eyes.
Like tiny water bombs, they hit – then explode!
Dreams, my own, sadly implode.
Rivulets run rapidly across my face.
On my knees I pray for grace.
This stormy sky, suddenly as black as coal,
Reflects pain gripping my soul.
As raging sky rains wrath upon Mother Earth,
This vision contests my worth.
With white water rising ’round me rapidly,
Fight to free the Thee in me
While mighty flood gates hold back the water’s flow
I refuse to let you go!
I find I’m weeping on consecrated ground
With dark wet stones all around.
As the angry cloud bursts wildly weep with me,
You’re off to eternity.
Your spirit’s gone, leaving only skin and bone,
And I am left here alone,
Sadly sodden, and alone.
Just a poem about the sadness of a loved one’s passing and the devastation felt.
