Grieving It

by Brenda Louise Lewis

IT is gone!
IT shakes my spirit.
I just can't think.
It makes no sense.
I close my eyes,
I open them,
still, IT is lost,
I clutch my heart,
I question IT, but
It is gone.
How can IT be?
I scream and 
No voice comes.
In a breath,
I see IT is real.
I run in circles,
I can't sleep,
I can't eat, and...
The Voice says,
"Go on !"
I walk,
I get up,
I sleep,
I eat,
I choose to go on.
I remember IT.
