Loss

I’m sorry
for your loss
doesn’t even come close
to the depths of sorrow
I feel now, watching
you shrink into a
pale shadow, thin
and insubstantial
because of yet another
heartbreak
another loss.
So much ripped away.
And I can’t help you
on your path
because that would stunt
the struggle
that has to be
for you to become
who you are meant to be.
But I’m sorry
for your struggle,
your new loss,
your sadness,
and if I could
I would take them
from you
and cast them
into the ocean depths
to sink, while you
float free.
