Still Standing

Contrary winds have blown across my heartstrings and wreaked havoc with my haven and safe, happy home.

Terror gripped and ripped at my mind; as I helplessly watched my most precious love slip from this life into eternity.

Suffocating loneliness, as I have never known before, descended upon me like an avalanche.

I did not know the human heart could possibly feel this much pain and loss and trauma.

Bitterness has come knocking at my heart’s door several times; but I refuse to answer.

My life has changed and been rearranged in a million ways; and I don’t always know how to answer the questions anymore.

However, I’M — STILL — STANDING!

    1. Thank you. I wrote this for a dear friend who lost her husband suddenly from a heart attack several years ago.
      It’s amazing how it applies to so many of us during our dark days.

  2. This is so fitting these days. I’m becoming so weary of the news of someone I know passing…especially young adults. Thank you…💕
