Ann's Corner

A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

Crying Comes Suddenly

Crying Comes Suddenly

Crying comes suddenly

Brought on by thought, or memory

Stark realization

That you are no more

And there is nothing I can do to bring you back.

There will be no cards, no gifts,

No tender squeeze, no misty glance

No happy chuckle

As special moment is enjoyed

In shared love.

This is hard

I didn’t know it would be like this

The pain of loss

Final separation

From the one I chose to love.

Lord, help me embrace the pain

As a friend, to accept, to heal

Not as a foe, to run from and hide.

Perhaps, with time, sorrow will fade and pass

No more to be.

I love you, James.
