Something Lost

To lose something irreplaceable-
Is to lose a piece of your being.
This something, which has been with you all your life,
Is suddenly wrenched away, by unseen hands.
And life comes to a halt.

To lose something irreplaceable-

Is to lose a piece of your being.

This something, which has been with you all your life,

Is suddenly wrenched away, by unseen hands.

And life comes to a halt.
Never before has it occurred to you,

That this thing-

This thing you’re so attached to-

Could one day be lost forever.

Life goes on without it,

But something seems to be amiss.

So a quest for a replacement commences.

Something akin to it is found.

But, no voids have been filled.

The voids have merely been covered up

With fragments that easily come undone.
The search is continued in vain,

With an unrelenting hope

That the void inside you

Will cease to exist.

Unknowingly and unaware of it,

Life without the thing, seems easier.

Life continues.

And Hope navigates you through it.
