Song of Grief

The grief shall pass out,
Time is a healer, they say.
The love gone is irreplaceable,
But sadness is temporary, they say.

I don’t know what to say,
I don’t know how to stand beside you.
The times are dark, very dark indeed,
The reasons are many, the ways are few.

You’re a warrior,
You shall see her reflections everyday,
In yourself!
Stand up for yourself,
That’s what She wanted,
I don’t know what to do, myself.

Remember, what She wanted,
She still wants to see you powerful,
It’s easy said than done,
But stand, I know you’ll.

The people around you are there,
To help you out, in these dark times,
I know the moment in painful,
Defies all your victories, but still they chime.

Rise up as and when you wish!
I am here to do whatever I can,
Little, it maybe, useless though,
But still of help, as a human.

  3. This poem effectively expresses the helpless we all feel when trying to comfort someone who has lost a loved one. In the end, all we can do is tell the person that we are there for them. Very well done, Rejoy! Have a great weekend! 🙂 Cheryl
