Grief

How can any of us pause from weeping? But it was time to call for mom.

Like a slow movie she was ushered into the room.

Stubborn silence stood between her and dad’s lifeless body.

 

{                                     }

 

Finally, she let out a guttural wail of despair.

“Why … did you leave me ….”

Those five words named the unbearable ache none of us could express, and we joined her in the dirge of grief and despair and disbelief and pain.
