Grieving

“a journey we do not ask to take, 
but one that occurs with death”



Gone is your physical embodiment of life,

Remembering memories of our time together,

Inability to comprehend you’re not here,

Exploring my feelings, feeling your soul,

Very difficult journey to a new reality

Is not a problem to be fixed but an experience to live through.

Not forgotten but-

Gone forever

    Yes it can be, but I am volunteering doing bereavement counselling too, so it is consuming my life right now. Not one of my best, did not have the energy to write well that day. Take care, enjoying your work. Lee

    Thanks Linda-Marie, as you can tell I am now doing bereavement counselling at hospice, so I am focused on this more morbid topic. Feeling a little drained, not sure how you and Constance keep up your inspiration. Lee
