Grief can be many things.
Losing some of their nearest
A father, mother, sister, brother, or his own child
A while back, death was taboo
We did not talk about it
Grief you should wear alone
We are all different,
providing each our way
Different cultures and ways of life
We have become a little more open in our grief
share our grief with others.
if we share our grief,
it becomes a little easier to bear
But it is still there,
you as a fellow human
dare to hug not turn youself away
even though other cries
Rather wipe the tear away
* Four weeks ago disappeared a 16 year old girl here in Norway,
No trace of her ...
Major exploration crew every day.
Yesterday they found her ..... dead - killed.
For a grieving family must bear.
Such things happen every day
