My pain still burns on in my chest
And I still feel it in the night
But now it's all coming to rest
And these memories are not such a blight
I feel the things they say I should feel
And I still think sometimes of you
But now It's easier to bring it to heel
And now my thoughts less often brew
I know it will eventually all be gone
And I thank God that it doesn't well up so much
These feelings I held for so long
Are pushed down now at my slightest touch
I can now more easily forget
And turn my thoughts away a while
Now this pain is like a sunset
And slowly I raise my head and smile

    This is a poem that could relate to anyone who has lost someone, to someone else, to circumstances--or permanently to death. It is so empathically perfect it should be included in recovery programs.
