Sitting on my bed
Eating breakfast alone
Suddenly my brain wanders
And my heart feels sad.
I look around the room
Which suddenly becomes the world
I sense a feeling of anger
From events in my past.
The anger leaves quickly
And the arrow of sadness stings
When the shadows of family members
Can’t be seen by my naked eye.
Death has snatched some friendly faces
Money caused a tear in family seams
The years have not repaired the tears
And I still do not understand.
I have my children and their families
I have some friends where I now live
But the familiar and loving people
Are now silhouettes in my mind.
Written by my feelings,
