Sorry For Your Loss


When I say ‘sorry for your loss’,

it may sound perfunctory,

trite even.

but what I mean is…

I am sorry that you wake in the night, gasping for breath,

heart racing in agony.

I am sorry that you will know a lifetime of ‘what ifs’ and

‘could-have-beens’.

I am sorry that you ache for one more minute with your love,

knowing it can never be.

When I say sorry for your loss, please know

my soul is reaching out to yours in understanding

and trying very hard to take away,

just one little ounce,

of your pain.

Donna Ashworth
