Sequestered

A year has passed.

Time has conquered moments

Now left only in memory.

Days of celebration have

Faded beyond the clock,

Leaving a gap of shadow

Where your face once shined.

Sounds from yester-years sink

Beneath new voices,

Forcing our souls to reach

Further to recall.

Time has ravished recollections,

Leaving not but vague thoughts

That flow past the heart.

There…

in this place man calls the Center of life…

There…

in the middle of my own self,

Is where time cannot burrow.

There…

you will be safe.

Untouched.

Forever to remain…

my son

Do you think it helps talking about loss, sometimes the grief is unbearable isn't it? X

Thank you all. I haven't been on here in a long while. I lost my son a year and half ago to Epilepsy. After that my writing shut off for a while. I am trying to get back into my talent and your words are very encouraging and appreciated.
