A Mother's Grief
Gave wings to my tomorrows
O grief! O Sorrow! my sadness consumes me
Lost In an Abyss of Despair and Sorrow
Their spirits are different, the ones who shaped my todays;
Gave wings to my tomorrows;
Inspired Light within this flickering flame.
O Love, how do I cope with this inner emptiness;
This bale of suffering in my Spirit?
I busy myself with trifles,
As, left to my thoughts,
The mind races down the path of desolation,
An uncomely chase whose price is woe.
O grief; o sorrow! My sadness consumes me;
I dine at night, with the heavy weight of despondency!
Do illumine my prayerful Heart.
Helpless! Helpless! I swim in a river of hopeless tears,
And tug at the soul to relieve my fears.

... and Tug at the Soul to Relieve My Fears
Quote about grief by Sri Chinmoy
"...Human grief or remorse purifies the aspiring and evolving heart. The idea of grief purifying the soul is all rubbish. The soul does not need to be purified; it is already pure. What is purified is the heart. Sorrow can illumine the heart." -Sri Chinmoy
"You feel sad that you have failed.
Dive deep within.
You will feel that God’s sadness
At your failure
Far surpasses your sadness.
Does it not console you?
It should and it must."
Waking by Aldous Huxley
