My Muse

In loss …

My heart ached with the memory
My thoughts lingered on his history
My soul cried in its misery
My body quaked with the finality

In writing…

My heart found expression
My thoughts posed its question
My soul sought compassion
My body gave up its aggression

In remembering ….

My heart is filled again
My thoughts of him remain
My soul struggles to retain
My body cries in vain

In sharing …

My heart found compassion
My thoughts found solace
My soul found hope
My body found peace

In losing my son at age fifteen
My life was turned upside down

In writing I found a connection
Ways to express the inexpressible

Through blog and verse and prose
I shared my painful journey

And even if my mother was the only one to ever read them
Our tighter bond is reward enough
