An emaciated looking man of sorrows

set silently to mourn

the death of his darling bride,

In her loss, his greatest grief was born

She had been his constant companion

For a mere six years,

and for their many lost tomorrows

He wept the bitterest of tears

By: J.N.R Dutton

Inspired by the life & pain of a fellow poet,

whose wife of merely 6 years contracted & died of a lung ailment.
