The Future …

Some days I feel like I have come so far, done so well

Since a year ago, when my world literally ended for me.

But then, I get a heavy feeling in my gut and the bells of doom kell

Their heavy tolls, awakening me to the emptiness within my heart.

I look around and watch sadness creep in like waves

Through my soul, my mind, my body, showing me the grave

That I do not have the courage to visit.

How do I keep the feeling of accomplishment and resist

The bells that ring in tandem to random thoughts of loss?

There is no way to shine from heaven the unknown gloss … of forever, together.

      1. I remember when my brother passed away a few years ago and when I come across something that I know he would have enjoyed, there is a huge sigh from missing him. God will never leave or forsake you, my dear.

    1. Robbie, I so wish I were stronger; so wish I were further a long. Some hurts never go away, but they’re not supposed to. I just wish I could predict when these slumps are going to knock me down again. Thank you so much for all you done to help me this past year. You are a blessed friend.
