Dedicated to my Mom.

One person,

afraid of death;


scared of being alone.

Two intertwined souls,

fearing for the other;

words left unspoken,

suffering in silent worry.

To the older

the pain is physical,

sometimes aided by medicine;

but the younger hurts,

an emotional wound

that always stays open.

No cure, little relief;

prayers go unheeded

as if this is a test.

Someday it will end

for the Mother, the older;

for the Son, the younger,

loneliness has already begun.

What a wonderful write...raising questions, thoughts and fears we all face.

Indeed there will be suffering and challenges on all levels in this life. It seems that every day has something that challenges the heart and causes one to become introspective. Poignantly written E.J. Blessings to you!
