A Hole Within, To Be Healed

A Hole Within, To Be Healed
A Hole Within, To Be Healed

I keep the hole within
clean and dust free,
as if in resolution
I want it to be accommodating,
yet what resolution could come,
so perhaps I should let the dust
and cobwebs form a crust,
fill that vacant hole,
where love used to be.

I try to fill the space
with new life,
thoughts of happiness,
but still it feels empty,
like an ache that needs filling,
and I guess time will tell,
if I can forget the pain,
the injustice of judged sins,
driven home by spiteful greed.

Forgiveness I have undertaken,
to free myself,
yet linger it does,
the loss of my long time friend,
parted despite me,
to control an old man’s wealth,
a vicious heartless wife,
a jealous spite
that tore this hole within.

Calmly I allow them to be,
just as they are,
for this is not my life to govern,
not my place to save,
contest the demon,
so I step back and let this hole heal,
filled with better days
and futures not torn apart,
for myself.

Yet sadness looms every day,
the loss hard to deny,
and in spirit I shall always be
with my friend, over coffee,
sorting out the world,
venting the struggle
and sharing life
in love’s perspective,
and that will always be, in my heart.

    Nothing can replace what was, yet the precious memories and love for your friend will heal that pain. I hope some day even more love will fill that hole. Take care, my friend.
