How do you catch up with life when you lost everything you love

I woke up one morning and my liffe was all just fine,

but that was before my life left me behind.

My life kept going forward and I stayed in the past,

it seemed it past me as things went way to fast.

First I got a phone call my baby sister had just passed away,

I felt as though my heart had died there was nothing I could say.

Two years had passed before I could even move,

but still my life I watched, I didn't know what to do.

Then came another call at two in the morning,

it seemed I had lost my mother, my sister she would be joining.

Then the day I burried my mom the worst was yet to happen,

my wife decited she wanted her freedom and left me to my sadness.

I felt as though my world had ended I lost everything I loved,

now as my story goes on I wonder what's next to come.

I've asked myself so many times now the answer I must find,

how do I catch up with my life or do I stay behind.

Only God will have that answer so Him I must seek,

not a day goes by that I dont feel week.

But now I know someday my life will be my own again,

and to see my love ones is the goal I must win.

Now when I look ahead my life I can almost touch,

and in God, my salvation I must trust.

This is extremely well done! It's a full-blown
tragedy with a hopeful outcome. Very inspiring.
Kind regards M.

God never promised us an easy road to travel, only that he would see us through it, and be with us the entire way. This piece is sad and gripping, but I loved the faith and hope displayed at the end. Well penned.
