don’t cry any more.
Cold numbness sets in,
heavy heart weighs down
a tired aching soul.
Age doesn’t matter;
the burden of sadness
puts more years on
than actual trips around the sun.
One day to the next is
steady resolve sometimes takes hold,
and others are filled with deep despair.
Time marches on,
making the need to dwell on loss
more of a memory.
But one never completely forgotten.
