A Crumbling Pillar

Sorrow by Dechobek at deviantART

   

Her resolute strength
Sustained her through
Those long last hours
Beside his hospital bed,
The morbid task
Of making final arrangements,
The solemn moments
In that quiet cemetery.
As her friends and family
Faded back into
The normalcy of their lives,
When she finds herself alone
In a bedroom no longer shared,
She cries.
