kshandra: Close-up of a single lit candle against a black background (Candle)
...I'm not sure what was harder: Hearing the news, or having to tell [livejournal.com profile] murphymom. (I actually called her in the middle of class; I needed to know she'd heard it from family.)

The tears I feel today
I'll wait to shed tomorrow.
Though I'll not sleep this night
Nor find surcease from sorrow.
My eyes must keep their sight;
I dare not be tear-blinded.
I must be free to talk
Not choked with grief, clear-minded.
My mouth cannot betray
The anguish that I know.
Yes, I'll keep my tears till later:
But my grief will never go.
