Can’t help but feel

a deep sense of pain

as I reflect

on the past few days


Just one week ago

I remember feeling cheated

out of work and have it all

cut short


But little did I know

that the week to follow

would turn my world

upside down


I had the strength

the support

as I sat in this chair

last Thursday


But today I sit and

fight back tears

Left with emptiness


that what I’ve lost

will find me again
