​What Have They Done?


When love comes
tears fall
with each connection
with each caress
anguish wells up

Where joy should be
fear resides

Fear of tragic loss

One by one the losses came
with no way of knowing
or grieving their end

Without warning
abuse, loss, betrayal
from hands that once were familiar
from deep connections made
from those who were loved
from those who held her world
in their hands

Love comes followed by pain
and then anguish and loss and fear

Now what is left with each feeling of love
is the grieving of its end

Loss clings to every joy of belonging

Loss grieves with each feeling of love felt

What have they done to a soul
that has so much to give?

But there is no one to pay
for they say
life just happened this way!
