Stages

Stages

Shock
Say it isn’t so
I can’t accept your leaving
My world just went dark

Pain
Time crawls without you
The air is a stifling cloak
Each breath is a sob

Anger
How dare you just go
Leaving joy we could have had
Things we could have shared

Depression
Sadness hangs on me
Twenty-four hours each day
No sign of retreat

Acceptance
At last I wake up
Signs of life and hope appear
One step at a time.

  1. I was just browsing some wordpress websites and stumble upon yours. I must say, this set of poems is really beautiful, an touching. I had a loss in my family a few years back and this really touched my heart. Thanks for writing this!
