LIFE GOES ON

Life goes on,

That’s what they say.

The Earth keeps turning

Day follows night

Spring follows winter,

Time heals.

But in those first raw days

Time stood still.

Our lives were suspended,

Hanging, motionless, without direction or purpose.

You had touched so many other lives

Now suddenly changed

For ever.

After the tears, we laughed at treasured memories,

Listened to your favourite tunes,

Tried to make sense of what had happened.

But there was no sense

No reason to take a young life

A son, a brother, a friend.

But our lives have continued,

Time has numbed the pain, not healed.

You are still here with us

In so many ways,

But not how we had planned or would have chosen.

Life has now been going on for two years, two months, two weeks and two days….
