There’s Been a Death in the Family 

There’s been a death in the family

But I won’t be there.

Work comes first

Over grief and despair.

 

It’s cold and removed,

This I know to be true.

But it’s not my pain,

So what am I to do?

 
What is there to say,

What is there to say?

Strangely nothing,

To a writer’s dismay.

 
Regardless, I know

This fact to be true:

There’s been a death in the family,

But there’s nothing I can do.
