Loss - Poem by Jessica Goodell

It happens so fast
You don't have time for anything
No time to think
No time to understand

It comes with a fury
It's like a hurricane
Always leaves destruction behind in it's wake
The memories of what was flash by

The pain lasts forever
Or so it seems
The tears roll down freely
You're never really able to let go

Even though you know
It was their time
They are no longer suffering
It doesn't lessen the pain

The pain knocks you down
Down to your knees
It hurts so much
You don't know if you'll ever be able to move on

It won't get any easier
But you will be able to go on
You will learn to move forward
And eventually live with the pain

The pain will start to subside
And when it does
You'll understand and accept it
You will move on

But the memories won't ever fade
Only become easier to remember.
