Poem of Grief
There is little comfort found in empty words when someone we love dies. When we are forced to face our grief alone, we reflect on our sorrow, we look to find answers.
This famous quote was found on a headstone in Ireland, “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”
At some point in our life, we will have to deal with grief. When grief finds us, it will change us. Who we are inside will be revealed during our season of grief.
This poem was written after the loss of my mother. It was one of the most difficult periods of my life. Let the words flow and see how the poem reveals what we all desire after we lose someone we love.
Poem of Grief
Loss or separation
With frightening delusions
The moment you died
Tears flow freely
In moments like these
Flowing over the heart
Like a gentle breeze
Of reflective sorrow
Knowing this truth
Will be with me tomorrow
And fear surrounds
Leaving an empty echo
Of vibrant living sounds
Fleeing the second
My heart just broke
Swallowing the ache
Over the pain I choked
