It is as though there’s some obstruction
probably of my own construction
that makes me concentrate on things
instead of all that loving brings.
It’s true that objects may be lost,
but still, it’s not at half the cost.
For it is when loved ones are taken
that one’s world is truly shaken.
When objects break, it pains our purse,
but losing people is much worse.
For when death rends lovers apart,
the thing that’s broken is a heart
The prompt word today is “missing.”
