Feeling Numb


by MelB

You said we'd be together,
as I watched you take your leave.
Now you are gone forever,
and I find it hard to breathe.

Left me standing all alone;
not knowing how to get through.
Pain sears down through every bone;
my heavy heart torn in two.

I'm like a ship lost at sea,
as I search the waves of blue.
You are the one who is free;
while I'm stuck here without you.

I push through the daily grind;
but, I just can't feel a thing.
Thoughts of you invade my mind,
then grief lets me feel the sting.


January is a tough month - lost my mom to cancer last year. My mom's birthday was January 9th and her wedding anniversary was the 18th. She went into the hospital on the 12th and died on the 26th at hospice. I cared for her for 2 weeks, and had to have the talk with her about hospice - a conversation I never imagined having with anyone. I'm flying to Florida to be with my dad right before her death date.
