Haunted

And one by one we lose
Everything we love
First Teddy bear,
Noseless, threadbare
Toys broken
Crushed by first crush  
Dad died first
Then mother
Cousin, brother
Each friend,
My wife
One by one 
Can’t work, can’t play
I am alone, a
Lingering
Ghost

  1. Oh Eric, this is so heart-breakingly, crushingly emotional, describing loss perfectly, from the noseless, threadbare bear and broken toys to the lingering ghost. I can only imagine how it must feel to be the last one left.
