“The death of my child

leaves me

in

a different world

I feel

set apart

somehow.

My choice

to

face

her

death

has opened

secrets

I

did not know

were there.


Excerpt From: Arleah Shechtman. “Poems.” Apple Books.

I came in one day

&

found Sharon dead

&

I went mad.

Because you were there

&

let me have

my

madness

&

grief

I am healing.

Thank you
