Living Life


Our losses reflected in feelings of emptiness

As we faced with piteous looks not even masks can conceal

Looks that are felt through our deep sense of loss

A loss for something or someone who is no more

When clarity hits and there‚Äôs the need to express

Approach that empty chair as if they were there

Allow it to symbolise the loss or the hope of a return

To help facing living without that something or someone

May we find comfort in what we once had

Allowing the memories to fill our lives

Giving us strength to continue to hope

Hope that cannot be taken away
