My Grief: A Poem about Losing A Loved One

My Grief. A poem by Dr Sarah-Jayne Gratton

My Grief

Why? Cruel winds burn upon my flesh and swiftly stir upon my stream of tears

Your name, in gusts of anguish deep and dark as any night sky your gaze once graced

To exclaim without refrain, without a breath left within my soul,

You, your very essence sinks inside my heart, absorbed by a disbelief of truths sharp as a knife

To face life’s winter without a guiding light beside me held by your frame

To breathe this air of worlds we dare to bridge by faith, and not by sinful thoughts abide

Where are you now, when ripples spread, when tides recoil in fearful tumblings

When all around your face descends, enclosing time and honoured by the hope that you’ll appear

To me once more and I shall see your smile again.
