May 15 - “Anniversary of a Daughter’s Passing”


The day seemed endless - trapped in the cobwebs of my mind,

Haunting me with memories of the very worst kind

Trying to tread above water while being pulled down,

Into the depths of dispair - struggling not to drown

Tears flowing freely from grief-stricken eyes,

Pondering all the questions - especially the whys?

My heart breaking into pieces so tiny and small,

Until i felt no heart left at all

I was frozen in a time and space so bizarre,

Feeling her so close and yet so far

Whispering her name as if she could hear,

Hoping somehow to draw her near

I payed for peace and an end to the pain,

Knowing I’ll see her sometime again

When the day was mercifully over and gone,

I picked up the pieces of myself and went on.

— Elaine MacMullen, Meriden
