A Poem of Loss



 Hi to all my lovely, supportive followers.  
Just as my mother returns to her nursing home after a 3 week stay in hospital and my father is having a good week at his nursing home, we have more distressing news...

This is my poem, dedicated to my beautiful friend, Sharon Lucchesi 
A rock, a gem! With much love

Your Loss Echoes Through A Silent Inbox by Madeleine Sara
 


My heart senses

Though my mind shuts down.

Good memories fade, as sleepless nights

with heavy thoughts invade.

A virtual silence. Inoperable;

too weak, too ill, to send.

My best friend and virtual mother, both

certainly must end.

Confirmation by envoy, then

the emotional tsunami.


Sadly my dear friend, Sharon, died in the early hours of Tuesday 25th March 2014, California time. She will be dearly missed.
