This work has reached the exceptional level
A poem i wrote to help heal grief


by babykoala


Its said, when someone parts this earth,
A theory deep instilled,
They leave behind a gaping void,
A hole that can't be filled.

A hole so dark, devoid of hope,
A place where dreams can't grow,
Its cold and numb and dark down there,
Yet...there's where I must go.

I stand and stare into that void,
At one with your abyss,
But then...there glows a tiny light,
Too bright for me to miss.

It grows and grows and as it nears,
My soul begins to thaw,
I close my eyes, take in it's warmth,
My heart feels whole once more.

For in that beautiful blinding light,
Im hit with tides of love,
Of comfort, hope and fledgling dreams,
Sent straight from up above.

Your strength and grace, though once contained,
In a vessel now departed,
Is free to touch and comfort me,
Though I'm weak and broken hearted.

I feel each lesson you ever taught,
Each time you held my hand,
Each time you showed me right from wrong,
And now I understand!

That when you left, you did not go,
You did not leave this earth,
You turned into my guiding star,
This is not death....it's birth!

And as long as I can see that light,
I'll live my life through you,
And I know your here each step I take,
Just like you always do.

For me this worlds forever changed,
But until this world is over,
My heart will burn the brightest light,
My Mum...the Supernova.
