Consumed – (a Tale of Bereavement)









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!
