We Can't Leave This

We Can’t Leave This
(December 14, 2012)
Lisa A.Williams

We can’t leave this
even the earth feels
in her core,
from the loss
of innocence
taken under
a bright sky
who could not see
what lurked in the shadows.
Heaven now cradles
what earthly love cannot.
Their empty arms
embrace each other,
seeking solace
for a grief
                                                                        like no other.


  1. "even the earth feels in her core"...so true, a great depiction of the depth this sorrow goes to. And your final sentence perfectly encapsulates the aching grief. Great poetry Lisa.

  2. so lovingly penned... a beautiful expression of grief and compassion.

  3. You have expounded on the loss of life and love here in a manner near mystical.

  4. Indeed, a grief like no other. Your words have great meaning after the Newtown tragedy. Thank you for sharing with Poetry Pantry.
