the widow

the widow

a widows web is weaved
with lamentations and memories
and sprinkled trinkets
that glisten
and transform into
fleeting warm smiles

we try to hold on
but the delicacy of times past
that which did not appear
at those moments
as authentic
has now transmuted to treasures
we fight to conjure into our lives
on a daily basis

dare i not forget

the children serve as reminders
with their anguish cloaked
with reason
and distraction
of the day

yes we are lost
in a new wilderness
seeking a way
to resolutions we abhor

we send seemingly meaningless wishes
into the ether
hoping that lore was true
that there is a heaven
and again
i shall be with you

but now i am but a widow
weaving a web
to hold to these memories
in my heart
in my head
when i was alive
and not just

the Widow
