All that Remains Is Oftentimes More Than You Think

All that Remains ...


All that remains number but few

a mangled scooter for one ....

hidden from view but for all to see

the havoc one mistake had done.

 

For years on tree bark did knelt

supporting its maple trunk, broadly hewn.

Fearful was I that if memory felt

would be cast to the wind if strewn.

 

When he rode it home that first night ...

a "giant" astride a motor ride small.

So incongruous was,  the contrast did seem,

what lay ahead ... that would us soon befall.



To part with this relic

would  I not his memory betray?

An anguished decision, but I let it go

lest inadvertantly I myself slay.


Unlike the verdancy of grass,

that withers so soon fast.

Stubborn remembrance defiantly stay

the course of time ...  long last.

There are no words that one can say to console another from the loss of a child. A time in life that is most devestating and sometimes never heals. An ache that remains when part of you is gone. This just tears my heart to shreds.....

Be always safe,
Karen

Alan,

I don't know what to say. How does someone console a grieving parent?

Shalom, that is all I can think...Zeh hacole...Shalom. - Sara

P S - I know my transliterations suck...Sorry.
