Hole in My Heart

Death leaves a hole

In the heart,

Emptiness personified.

Hole in My Heart

Longing unanswered.

Time slows down.

Grief sears my soul..

 

Originally written and sketched:  December 8, 1998

In the prior years I had lost several dear friends and family.  I wrote and sketched this feeling the emptiness family and friends left in my life and heart.  The image that came to mind was a hole in my heart.    When a loved one is lost I think it does leave a hole in one’s heart.   Grieving is a process we all get to learn as we grow older.  It is part of the maturing process.  It is one I would love to do without, but then I would not be the person I am because the pain and suffering make me cherish the moments I had with the loved one.  More importantly I have found that I cherish the living more.
