Tragic Memories

Tears of grief
subside within

Engulfed with memories
of laughter that once
echoed
thru the house

It’s now replaced
with dead silence

Locks now keep the
family out

Once was able
to be opened
with a key

Signs now say
“Not Suitable for Living’
where the Welcome mat stood

Stuck in probate
Just how long
should one wait?

It’s been two
years that I’ve been
stuck in probate

Lawyer telling me
“Not time yet”

Tears just mask
the torture of past
and present

With excess of
“It’s not Time Yet”
