Eight Weeks

by Maple Tree   Feb 11, 2019

Upon a night so cold and dreary
feeling life drain, making me teary.

Each day I wake to fill my soul
as life crumbles, taking its toll.

Magical beings float all about
making me falter, scream and shout.

Nothing can fade the sunshine in me
swallowing darkness shall set me free.

Take away her wings, her eyes of rain
release her numbness, her cancer pain.

For I refuse to let her go
as all of her tears, collect in the snow.

    Pain of yours you share with us
    I hope it gifts you strength enough

    There’s a lot of pain here, and you express it touchingly as always . I find ‘her cancer pain’ a little off, though? Maybe cancer pains is better? I don’t know. You pen sadness so well, Andrea.
