Sadness sits beside me in the silence,
companion on the path that grief has laid,
and both of us are looking into distance,
the past, the future; now the present grave.

It’s not in losing someone as a presence,
but rather separation from the heart,
and cutting of the ties emotion weaves;
a leaving for some far and distant part.

It’s not about the physical or literal,
but something more ephemeral and real,
that loss of a connection and a bond;
a severing from what we each can feel.

Such times are part of Soul’s eternal calling,
and brings a deep and sure abiding pain,
for reasons can’t lay salve upon the hurting;
it’s only time and hope which can repay.
