For Christopher

my heart breaks
i see the pain in your eyes
the emptiness of tears unshed
bottomless sorrow of loss
i hold you but cannot touch
your grief
gone too soon from this world
your companion, your friend
your brother
life just beginning
with love
with child
taken in moments too quick
to discerne
leaving behind the questions
the rage
the tears
the memories.

  1. That’s so heartbreaking. I’m so sorry for his loss. I couldn’t imagine losing my sister. It almost happened once and that was devestating enough.
    My he find the strength and peace he needs to get through this time.

  2. Thank you for all the comments. That’s a year’s worth of stuff you read through. Well, I’ll stop by and read your stuff often.
