Horrible, awful things are happening
How are we to survive all of this?
I try hard but my spirit is dampening
I’m already mourning all I’ve missed.
My 40th year is the least of these.
My marriage dashed; dreams gone.
My sister in law taken by a disease.
My sister, same disease, can’t go on.
Full of love, memories, childhood
Blessed with warm hands and hearts
No pain, no loss; all sweet & good
Never learned how to dodge these darts
Endless days of endless sorrow
Please, let me live, survive, please
Build me up, strength I’ll borrow
There’s no net under my knees
Falling, always falling, stripped bare
Calling out, reaching, no one there.
