Layed there on my back pondering your passage

Both directions struck the fear of God

Each still forces me to sob

The joy of your arrival, devastion of your departure

I pray for continued strength to endure

Not in the way I did…intense losing kids

I simply look to be included in the midst

Of the peace they claim is meant for me

Desperate just to be free from the stiffening pains afflicting me

Sharp memories replayed in clips

Force me to use all my gifts

To push away the day I began to seriously pray

And your little bodies flew astray

I focus on the joy which we had in abundance

And not this pain that’s festering and pungent

I reflect on your smiles and not the screams

That let me know life exchanged for another extreme
