Writers Digest PAD Challenge April 24, 2015 / That Moment

That Moment

that moment                was a defining moment           it was not a surprise

i knew it was coming       could happen anytime               in hindsight

i see there were many moments                        that lead up to that moment

perhaps all the moments before             were preparing me for that moment

the words you spoke         are seared into my heart                he just died......

the night before was hard to leave you                              i was called back

by a voice i did not recognize           or perhaps i knew somewhere deep inside

when i arrived                       you would be gone                         this moment

has shaped all of the other moments                             that are to come in my life

from that moment on                                   nothing will be the same

It's very descriptive and vivid, like a dream...I enjoyed reading it!

It was extremely difficult losing the one you loved the most... as the person leaves this world... you cherish all those moments that were spent with them... over the years you learn to cope with the loss..!

A memorable write..!

Yes. There was before that moment, and then the moment after which nothing will ever be the same. A huge cataclysmic loss, my friend, and you have weathered it with such grace.
