September 9,2011

that flood of pain comes
once more to shadow my heart
my life drains away

ten years seems so long
how could I have born the loss
with but one red rose

each year is one more
I must wait for your embrace
closer closer soon



9,11...never forget.

Yes...a torturous day for anyone who had experienced that kind of pain. Beautifully in its sorrow.
