For Grief

Rating: 5.0
When you lose someone you love,
Your life becomes strange,
The ground beneath you becomes fragile,
Your thoughts make your eyes unsure;
And some dead echo drags your voice down
Where words have no confidence
Your heart has grown heavy with loss;
And though this loss has wounded others too,
No one knows what has been taken from you
When the silence of absence deepens.

Putting feelings into words that touch your heart & soul has been mastered by John O'Donohue. I think they flowed from his heart & and it was learned but it was a gift given to him at the spark of his life. I love his poetry it touches my soul.

I've just read parts of your poem in an article in the Las Vegas Review Journal. Thank you for putting into words so poignantly what I feel right now. It will always remain a source of comfort to me. Thank you for this gift, Maria
