An Emptiness Anew

Guest poem by David Harrington (Dad)

I am still seeking an explanation

For your sudden departure from this life.

The world lost a beautiful, caring person

I lost my true love, my soulmate, my wife.

Sleep provides refuge when my lonely day ends

And rest for a body upon which it greatly depends —

Only a temporary reprieve for a heart that will not mend.

Because each dreary morning brings

An emptiness anew

For every time I wake up

I remember there is no you.

Like a cruel, daily ritual

I beg, “God, grant me this one miracle”

But alas upon truly awakening

I realize there is nothing anyone can do.

Because this is real and I have been left here

To endure another day in a life where

There is still no you.
