~Forgiving and Forsaken~

~Forgiving and Forsaken~

A Poem by AprilRN1210

“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.”

Arthur Pike


 






 

 


 

 

 

 

Lights are flickering in this darkness

drowning my soul in heart-breaking dread

left choking on SCREAMS of agony, “take me instead!!!”

shrill of phone, slaughtering spiritual thread

the call…. impersonal…..cold…..

…………“your brother is dead”……………..

 

 

The earliest memory, soothing snapshot

of me holding you, tiny little angel stained

without a mother, thrust into the same devil’s domain

sharing my chains of sorrow, torturing and INHUMANE………..

yet rainbows of unconditional love exchanged

your bright light lifting, allowing exalted refuge

………….so warm and comforting in a life of pain…………

 

 

I surrender my tears and anger

letting go of resentment, hate and despair

forgiving wicked ways of the world

for blatant refusal of unanswered prayers

light may be gone, but my love I declare

………may you be at peace with the angels up there……

Sometimes I think it's our mortality that makes life, love, tragedy and comedy beautiful. That's why I write. Thats why we create art, right...Idk where we go but I'm sorry to hear of your loss..nothing but kind thoughts to you

All I can say my friend.... is I am so sorry for your loss.....but you gave him your love while he was here, and that is all any of us can really do that is of any real meaning. He was fortunate to have had you as a sister.
