Hazy eyes

Poem in grief nearly a year after my father passed away.
Trying to figure out if I am to move on, or keep grieving, not certain of or ready for either one...


Hazy Eyes

A memoir- Grace
Remembering Daddy
His long, slow race

The time clock ticking
with death by his side

Me on his other
in me to confide

A soldier forever
He marched gracefully home
and now I am left alone here
with a marble headstone.

Days are like hours
and minutes like years.

Paddling through memories
of oceans of tears

Some days I cannot forge on

My journey, too far

I ask for his guidance

He says tread where you are
my love will come save you

Just wait- it's all par.

I'm waiting without him
for life to resume
sitting and wondering
too a feared to assume

Assumption of healing
getting on with life
becoming a mother
or somebodies wife.

Maybe Ill just stay here
until death comes for me too.
I'm too weary for the journey
but that's not what he asked me to do.
