Loss of time I could have spent better
Mislaying car keys, that important letter,
Overlooking appointments I should keep
Frustrating but not a time to weep.


Loss of money, haemorrhage of cash
Business crash - decisions that were rash,
Lost my way, in a black hole, in deep
Life changing - but not a time to weep.


Loss- loss of you, disappeared for ever
You - my light, my love, you so clever
Loss of you, no way back - grief so deep
A time of desperation, a time to weep.

    Very touching.... dismisses all the minor things we stress over in life and then cuts to the chase.
