Temple of Grief

Your temple of grief
I was afraid to walk in
The despair so steep
It seeped through your skin

Your world had crashed down
No warning, in a heartbeat
You’d been pushed in
The dark temple of grief

I stepped inside your temple
And saw grief mark my face
Darkness circled our eyes
It weighed a thousand tons

I reached for your aged hand
You slowly pulled it back
You probably wondered why
I was there in your temple of grief

I thought loving was hard
But receiving love is harder still
One often doubts
What one does to deserve it

I’d shot my own grief up the sky
It’d scattered like fireworks
Now I stood to watch it all fall back
Down on me, and pressed on…
