No one prepares us for grieving

for the hurt we endure,

when losing a loved one.

For the pain and the suffering the months before

and the harmony they reached,

when at eternal peace.

No one prepares us for grieving

for the feeling of losing your only true friend,

not having anyone to talk to

or reminisce with.

Of past days gone by.

you no longer want to go on.

For it is a fact

your whole emotional state

has become positively distraught.

And it's not until you experience

the grief for yourself.

But then no one but yourself

can prepare you for grieving.

No one to help pick up the pieces

of a broken heart.

Of tears you shed in tormenting sorrow,

and for the feeling

No one prepares us for grieving

because each different circumstance

ir in itself a different experience.

  • One Last Cigarette Please

    I know it is easy enough to criticise people who smoke, but also I know how difficult it is to quit. I gave up smoking after I saw what it did to my father after over 30 years of smoking.

    This was the very first poem I ever wrote back in 1969. It put me on the platform to bring out my creativity and to continue to write poems today.

You are right, no one prepares us for grieving, because the depth of pain that grief takes us to, can only ever be felt by those who know. From this poem, it seems that you know, and I am sorry. I am sorry for anyone who knows, because grief can take you to a very dark and lonely place and no one deserves such pain. I relate to and appeciate your poem, thank you for sharing. I look forward to reading more of your work.
