A Ceaseless, Eternal Grief

We bereaved- Loved our child since she was conceived. Doctors declare she was diseased. We sneezed and she was seized. It’s hard to breathe; I don’t know if I can proceed. They say I need to grieve. It’s just too hard to believe. Cancer is a thief. I have only one thing- a guarantee that she received peace. Forever will l squeeze, that her pain was eased. Carmen is free, indeed.

grief has no stoppage; but in the self satisfactory mind grief has no room; nice to read

Thanks for sharing this. Welcome to Poetry Soup. I welcome you with the love of the Lord, expressed by John 3:16 of the Bible, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." God bless you.
