how do I define you?
how do I write about you?
how do I talk about you?
how do I say that I too suffered from loss?
a loss so deep that it came
like a million arrows piercing through my heart,
a loss so fast that it felt
like a ten thousand pound truck hitting me without a horn,
a loss so not called for it was
like the earth suddenly shifting under my feet
a loss is a loss is a loss
but I can talk about you now
because you taught me that nothing is lost in the end
that a loss can be a gain
if only we learn that that’s life:
high tide and low tide,
a bright day and a darker than dark night
so my heart beats so fast ..not to think what I lost
but what I found when I was lost in the heart of loss
this poem is about my find
