Hoped For Outcomes

Suddenly life plans changed, a loved one

dies before their Time. Not what I had in
mind. A person’s sanity and will to go on
becomes challenging to find.
Days turn into months and then another
year. remembering the laughter, now always
ending in tears. a future never to unfold
knowing they will never be near to hold.
the good times as well as the bad,
the things I would do differently if
I only had another chance. I've been
to hell and back and it's no fun dance.
Many times swept away and without
warning into UN-immeasurable grief, it's
depth seemingly with no end. exhausting
and frozen in a state of disbelief.
My heart goes out to those who share
my fate dealing with the realization
the permanency is so final, finding
little in life one can smile.
Another day has ended, alone in my
living room staring at a painting on
the wall. Done in memory of a life
still filled with hoped for outcomes.
Blessed be the human being who can see
living in the past won’t bring them back.
There will be sadness in our tomorrows,
but if one allows themselves to discover…
  *Happiness is still ours to have*
