I write quite often on poetrysoup.com. They have contests, which are fun. I have placed in a few, pretty far down on the list, but my name is getting closer each time!

Today I entered a poem contest titled:

Memorial of a Loved One Poetry Contest

Here is my entry:

Losing my boys 

I lost my son and husband  
thirteen months apart. 
I never thought I’d make it 
with such a broken heart. 

I miss them both all the time 
my memories fall short. 
I wish I had them back again 
I try to be a sport.  

No matter what I say or do 
nothing of this can ever change. 
My life is now a different one 
many things to rearrange. 

And so I sit and cry a lot 
for two men that I lost. 
If God would give me one more chance 
I’d pay at any cost.
