Consumed – (a Tale of Bereavement)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Consumed…

 

Tears that over flow,

 

Emotional overload…

 

I can’t imagine the pain and the fear you went through,

 

The strength it took to carry on when all control was gone.

 

The fear of acknowledging & realising that ‘no one’

 

could save you from the clutches of death.

 

 

 

Consumed by helplessness… I wish I could have saved you!

 

Consumed by powerlessness… I wish I could have cured you!

 

Consumed by guilt… I wish I could have suffered & died for you!

 

But most of all… consumed by the love that I will always carry

 

deep in my heart for you!!

 

 

Gone but never forgotten!
