Mourning Poem

The Void Left By Loved One's Passing

At funerals, you hear, "I can't believe they are not here with me. Afterwards, it's like they never existed. No matter how great their loved one is (in their eyes), the rest of the world will go on. It is not that they don't care. They just must continue trying to get by with their own pressures of life. I am just an elderly man who enjoys writing, and I do care about the feelings of others.

Death Unnoticed

Published: November 2016

Out there in the Milky Way,
Where a billion stars call home,
When you look really close,
You'll see that each is alone.

No one less important
When lighting the evening skies,
Yet very few take notice
When one of them dies.

A black hole is created;
A dark shadow is cast,
And only those who are closest
Fear how long this will last.

The void that has been left there
Seems to draw all within.
Only time has the power to
Help the light shine again.
