Unforeseen Anguish

burned into my cortex
profound sadness, misery in
my father’s eyes
his daughter was gone
the only one who
followed him into

as now

my good friend’s loss
of his only daughter
there, in his eyes, voice, manner
despair, heartache, grief
however strong, burly he be
his broken heart is in shards
