My Dementia Diary 92 – A Tidal Wave of Grief

Suddenly
in the smothering silence of her loss
I am smashed into sobbing oblivion
by a tidal wave of grief

where once there were words of joy
sounds of love
the constant patterings of a life truly shared
there is only emptiness

a vast void

a black hole sucking my broken heart into nothingness

drowning in tears
I am swept away
by a river of silence

yet, gasping in eternal loneliness
I hear faint echoes

I love you

I love you

I love you…
