Loss Poem

Suffering And Loss Of A Loved One

My poem is not a happy one, it is sad and it is real, and at some point in life many will come face to face with some type of suffering, but the most heart breaking suffering is that of someone we love, and we can be so close yet feel so helpless. I am sure that there are others that have felt this type of pain.

Suffering Up Close

Suffering up close is so different from afar,
it's the supreme test in life,
to show what strengths there are.

Will I have the strength,
to watch the pain I do not bare,
and help another through her cross
which she does not want to share.

Can I help her make it through the night,
until the dawn appears,
and will I be able to comfort her and wipe away her fears?

Yes, suffering up close is so different from afar,
You know when you've been through it,
when your heart wears sorrows scar.

Almost one year since my dad passed of stage lV brain cancer and 11 day of pain to see him suffering to know his time was near. I went from praying for a miracle to praying to God to take his hand and guide him to eternity to be at rest. I could not bear to see it. My heart is shattered and broken beyond repair. Eleven days that just seem like yesterday. The heartache, pain, and tears never go away. The poem fits what I feel.
