Tick tock goes the clock on the mantelpiece

I hear it all the time even in my sleep

Time goes by so quickly now

Though feelings stay the same

My healing heart still hurts a lot

It will never be the same

How am I to carry on trying to pretend

Making out I’m fine when I think about the end

Got to keep going but for how long

I know I keep on trying

Trying so hard to stay strong

I feel inside I’m dying

Time goes by so quickly

Though not quick enough for me

I hurt so much inside my heart

If you look deep inside you’ll see

Tick tock goes the clock on the mantlepeice

When it stops finally I know I’ve found my peace

I am a 58 year old Daughter,Sister,Mama,Aunty & Grandma Bear 🐻 I have varied interests, including Writing Poetry 📝Medicine👩🏼‍⚕️Discovery Channel. I lost my dear angel mum in April 2020 to Dementia/Parkinson’s. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak I couldn’t be with my dear mum when she made her journey to heaven. 🥺 I’m still grieving and it doesn’t matter that I knew one day my dear mum was going to go, it still hit me hard. I cry most days but I’m also trying to build myself a life too, my dear mum was my life and unfortunately I couldn’t save her from such a terrible, heartbreaking disease. I raised money for research and still do to this day I pray everyday that there will soon be a cure. I write short stories but mostly poetry about my feelings, it’s like a therapy for me. To anyone who is going through or has been through such an awful sad journey please don’t be afraid to open your heart. There’s so many people going through tragic journeys we know little about but a comforting word of support and kindness goes a long way. Stay safe everyone and be kind to one another. Blessings 💜🙏🏼
