Death, Imagined

Statue of a weeping angel laying over an ancient grave

Death, imagined

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Please give reprieve
from my torrent of tears
When my heart believed
You would always be near.

Pelting down on me
With lightning grief
Drowning my soul
Lost in an endless sea.

Of grief unbound
And unexpected loss
Raining down and down
With no hope of rebound.

For you have gone
And where you were
There is only doom
With no hope for dawn.

You took the sun
When you died
Leaving in your wake
Our life undone.

Dedicated with love to my Big Viking. I’d be lost without you.”

  1. You took the sun
    When you died
    Leaving in your wake
    Our life undone.

    Loving the last stanza, weaved beautifully by your magical hands. Really intriguing lines of words. Hope to see more from you. Have hope, write on!
