“The Hardest Day”


The sun beat upon me as I stood at his grave
Tears streamed down my face as I was told to stay brave
It was a smoldering August day but I felt cold all over
Numbness filled my body and the weight of sadness sat upon my shoulder
The smell of interrupted dirt filled the air
I closed my eyes and felt the breeze lightly blow through my hair
I placed the last rose of fire and ice on his final resting place
I thought I heard his voice and my mind flashes back to his smiling face
My heart hung low as I turned and walked away
I didn’t know how or even if I wanted to get through another day

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is for John, my husband, taken from us too soon....my love for you will always remain in my heart, and your memories are all I have left of you. I just hope your soul is at peace and all the pain you had in your life is gone. Everyone who ever loved you and cared for you is forever damaged by your loss and no one will ever forget you.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
