Greif Has No Sell By Date

I am sad
Don’t be surprised
Struck down
The superficial wounds have healed
But inside the would bleeds internal
It leaks in cognito
Multiplying and spreading to infect 
It heads for my heart and eats
I have my grief
Don’t tell me to ignore it
It’s there its encroached my life
It won’t go away 
Happiness of a memory will always stay
My grief will always be here
It’s become my neighbour, my friends, it's me
It has not sell by date
It has not expiration
It will stay until it goes

    i know you have heard this before, but time does heal all wounds. in my long life i have been hurt so many times, so many broken loves, until i met my wife in 1969 and we were married in 1970.. this was a very moving piece you wrote.

    As you say so insightfully, grief "will stay until it goes," and sometimes it comes back when least expected. Quite a compelling poem! Love, Carolyn

    So insightful, and real feelings revealed. So many of us have wounds that heal on the outside...never on the inside. Well written, Reena! ~ Carrie

    Reena, good write, sad, but well-written! ..'It will stay until it goes' There's truth here, but the bottom line here is that it will go- it will pass. So hold on for tomorrow, OK? Peace and love, Audrey
