viduae lamentatione

Time is a healer or so they say

the seconds, the minutes, the hours

slip by.

Days become weeks,

weeks become months. Yet the pain

still remains.

The silence is deafening.

Expectations to still feel and sense a presence,

yet flowers decay dried and withered

by the elements.

The emptiness collects the tears and words

of the widow’s lament.

Nights of loneliness,

days of quiet.

Insomnia takes hold

regrets of what ifs,

conversations never had unable to forgive.

Yet the end creates a new start.

As a circle completes and the pain lessens

its hold on the heart.

So time is a healer or so they say.

Never forgotten

the spirit kept alive in memories.

A vigil at your side kept once a year.

Laughter begins to fill the house as the

happy times resume,

and a new future of possibilities blooms.
