Loved and Missed

image

 

She was trembling with frightening tears
Stroking his hair and the warm body
Her sobbing in a distance
Echoed in a quiet neighborhood

My feet were on rhythmic steps
Stretching my ankles and knees
The sorrow weep was not overlooked
My steps turned to the corner of the green

Stooped down and gently inquiring
Her first words were of guilt and fear
She let her dog run free under her watch
Street was far from major intersect

Had no worries of passing vehicles
She leisurely tended her roses and lilacs
A truck made a sharp turn around the corner
The dog was alerted by the sudden squeak

Ran toward home as fast as his legs could take
Shortened by inches running away from the wheel
The truck moved on without hesitation
Left the sweet little dog lying still

She was beside herself by the frightening sight
Picked up her precious with bewilderment
Fear and tears overpowering her senses
Husband’s displeasing, she couldn’t bear

No words could comfort such loss
Complicated by worrisome consequence
Stayed by her side offered my condolence
Eased her guilt of incidence not in her control

My presence did not reverse the tragedy
A little understanding and company
Seemed to ease her trembling
She wiped the tears, a glance with uncertainty

A pat on her laps and a nod of my head

I went on for my exercise, wishing her the best

 

Life’s Symphony

music-748118__340

Life is a continuum of the Great Symphony

Adagio expresses soothing melody with sweet love

Melancholy inner sorrow of the soul

Maestoso pitches the triumph of the Great Spirit

The victory of a long and hard won battle

Fortissimo frees the shout from the depth of the heart

Proclaims the greatest joy ever told

Pianissimo whispers to your ears the faintest sob

Breathes the darkest secret only to you

Every now and then, comes the rest, and rest

Silence! What tranquility it is in our Life’s Symphony

Sorrow and Loss

My deepest condolences to Bernadette’s loss of her son Andrew. Bernadette at Haddon Musings hosts the weekly post “52 Weeks of Thankfulness” and I was a proud participant.

The Starry Night

Vincent van Gogh

“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.

William Shakespeare

My dear friends, it is with a very great sorrow that I tell you that my dear son Andrew died yesterday.
