Your love covers me like a blanket
But the sorrow seeps through and tears burn my eyes
The space you left empty
A hole in my heart which will never heal
Your smile and grace knew no bounds
Your art laid in your works
A path never to grow over
There will never be enough time or hellos for this one goodbye
Why is love in death so terribly painful?
Why can’t love in life be strong enough
To defy the death when it comes?
This lovely painting by Kansas City artist Susan Creamer Joy hangs in my living room. So much better than therapy.
