Death Robbed Me Today

Death robbed me today

 

Death nibbled

Chunk out of past as repast

I found out today, a loved one

Has journeyed on

 

Should I mourn?

Or feel happy

illness did not let her live

is this misery’s win

 

she was, unconditional love

laughter seasoned common sense

blind faith outdated rituals, pleas

bottomless cups of ginger laced tea

 

 

if not an oak, she was a mighty tree

arms branching out lovingly

imparting welcome shade to a

sore, needy heart bereft, lonely

 

Should I mourn?

Or feel happy

illness did not let her live

is this misery’s win
