Reflections on Grief

By Nan Cameron

This is a poem I wrote in response to grief I experienced.

In an instant it’s gone
Just nothing
Hanging in the space
Left behind
Nothing matters
Not anymore.

The disbelief
The horror
Of the fullness of life
No more.

And you stare at the empty shore
And feel the emptiness
The infinite emptiness.

Desolate shore
Howling winds of emptiness
Blow across the bleak sand
The ocean of desolation cries to the hollows.

There is nothing
Once there was light
Now there is only this bleakness
The searing pain
In an instant it was gone.
