He Died

A phone call changed my post for today. I had a marvelous day other than that, full of great happenings that I will wait to share until later.  I'll write and post the good stuff for tomorrow.  For today, this seemed to need to be written instead.

Alone -
He died
With no family
To mourn,
Though we
If we'd
Known -
Never softened
Turned to
Stone -
Turned from
The world
A low
Moan -
Flown -
You did not
Need to die


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad you were able to use your writing to get feelings out.

  2. I'm so sorry. Your words hold such loss..reflect such isolation and an unwrapped story. Whereever you are .. sending positive thoughts nd love your way.

  3. So sorry. But I think more for him..."you did not need to die alone." Will haunt me

  4. What a difficult Slice to write and a difficult comment to compose for it.
    Thinking of you,

  5. I appreciate all for your support. I'd considered asking for no responses on this post, as it I knew it would be hard to respond to, and it was more just something I needed to express. Thank you for your thoughtful replies..
