The World Got Smaller Today (for Sadie)

The world got smaller today,

a message contained syllables, nouns and verbs that took my breath away,

another person gone….another shrinkage in my world, my family

and I am looking at fairy lights twinkle in the dark and feeling your life force pull away.

it’s a little lonely to be left behind, death is a cruel reality for those of us still breathing.

Not afraid of my own passing, not in a hurry for it either but when it does come it takes its toll on ones soul.

And my world is smaller, and I will shed tears but I will live on and embrace this thing called life for myself and all who have already passed on.
