She left suddenly

 and without warning

Everyone was left

 to contemplate their own mortality

Learning from this point

 how to deal with the empty space

An uncomfortable silence

 where there was once

a voice of support, guidance and hope.

 A place where there was once

 abundant laughter smiles, and unwavering encouragement,

now just a quiet emptiness



cold wind

scatters autumn’s leaves

(all) places…far and wide

  1. Sometimes the empty space and loss can be almost unbearable–your words are well expressed and appreciated, thank you.
