A free verse poem of grief.

Missing the People We Love

We feel like a puzzle piece is missing,
Saddened that the picture isnít intact.

Time and effort was spent on a cause,
Building a foundation out of love.

We canít see the whole photo,
But that doesnít mean itís incomplete.

The entire image is alive in our hearts,
A portrait no person can steal from us.

Your descriptive writing helps explain so well the loss, especially in the third and fourth lines. I really appreciate the uplifting last two lines. One of your very best. :) kathy

To let our feeling freely flow
let words free to say what
is needed
eases the pains , we constantly
we feel - them - every - every
