Grief, Death and Dying

What follows is a combination of poetry written after my son's death by suicide and writing during the journey of my mom's death from kidney disease.

Message from beyond or coincidence

Visitations -
those moments
when loved ones
who have passed
make their presence known

A balloon landing in a tree says
"I Miss You Mom"

A timer goes crazy
spinning and beeping
in the middle
of a family dinner

Surrender

Slipping behind
wandering off on my own path
letting it all go
I wander this foggy path
going nowhere
not caring
just being
no beginning
no end
tears ride
at the edges
