Mourning / Grief


Gone Too Soon
by David G. Bancroft

Emotions so deeply felt
for all those tragically dealt
with the mournful loss of a loved one
whose life was far from done
and tearfully... none more so
than those we know
who just begun
to experience the innocent fun
of being a child playing in the sun,
a toddler attempting to talk,
or a baby learning to walk.

Heartfelt prayers go out
for the children who are without
the nurturing love
of a parent taken above
with the hope of
them finding comfort
from caring family support,
and that the terrible hurt fades away
into a sad memory one day,
where they
can just be happy in play.

It is hoped that this poem represents in someway how all deeply feel, who have experienced the loss of a loved one well before a normal life span. So, many young ones lost due to wars, natural disasters like the late-December 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean, unthinkable genocide, murder, hunger, disease, accidents, and other terrible events . . . And the sadness felt for the littlest ones left without one or both parents.
