New Start - Poem by Chrissy Horning

TIME abides by only his rules
I often curse his will to exist
To steal you from us was abrupt and cruel
He should have known how you would be missed
DESTINY called you, disregarding our pleas
Her plan was absurd from my perspective
She watches us cry on bended knees
We beg to know her secret objective
PAIN steps in, he provides no relief
Just lingers around and thickens the air
Along for the ride, who else? ...
DISBELIEF, he summons his allies..GUILT and DESPAIR
HOPE feels their vengeance and heads towards the light
Our spirits too broken to convince her to stay
FAITH gives us advice to put up a fight
She informs us regrettingly, she'll be miles away
LOVE dwells patiently amongst the torment
Subtly tending to our broken hearts
STRENGTH vanished, he's been lying dormant
We wait for his power to find a new start
