This is a haiku series I wrote during a reflection on feelings of loss and despair. I present it without further comment.
Left in grief and tears Overwhelming agony All hope being lost
Time has flown away A haunting dread that follows So much left undone
So many mistakes Never to be rewritten Dread I must embrace
The past is the past To be better than before My only real hope
Will I be worthy? Can I learn from my mistakes? Am I to be lost?
I lift my head up Knowing not where I should go Heavy with despair
Grief and tears recede My sorrow clearing with time May I be at peace
