|The Sadness Bell|
The sadness bell
She's gone, taken, lifted up, left.
I feel numb, surreal, empty, bereft.
I cry, but just for what she left behind.
Because she is okay now - she doesn't mind.
The pain she had has now said a final goodbye.
She's up with the Angels now and flying high.
Smiles aplenty and hearty laughs once again.
Just like once before, just like way back when.
I smile as I think that her sufferings gone.
For I know it's true she will forever live on.
And we grieve for her body has left this plane.
But she's smiling down trying to ease our pain.
It was a wonder, a privilege, a joy to have known.
The wonder of her love she has unreservedly shown .
And we feel it all the more because of that gift.
A blade jagged and bloody turning a slow long twist.
The pain will ease, the hurt will subside in time.
Hard to imagine now as I write down this rhyme.
But she taught to grasp each happy joyful thought.
I will obey her wishes her life was not for naught.
My siblings and I, my father and friends as well.
And every one who knew her, are in a grieving hell.
Waves of grief wash over and burst into salty tears.
No pill to ease the sadness bell ringing in our ears.
