grief and loss

Gray waves, pounding on the shore,
give shelter to this mother’s roar
of anguish. You are here no more.

Gray skies, covering the view
of sparkling coast my eyes once knew.
I miss the sight of  it––and you.

Gray thoughts, drowning heart and mind.
I hear the cries but cannot find
the gulls. And I am left behind.

If this poem speaks to you, you might also relate to an earlier one written by the ocean, Remembering You.
