Yet As You Grieve
and post notes and photos about your poem like Janis Thompson.
You miss them more than cards can say
and think of them throughout the day.
Yet memories fond will bring a smile,
giving sadness chase awhile.
Material things that they may leave
are cherished tokens as you grieve.
Yet keepsakes sometimes can't replace
caressing of your loved one’s face.
How to abide this heavy heart,
the tear-soaked cheek, the silent dark?
Yet as you grieve kind words folks say
will brighten up this cruel day.
You may shed a sea of tears
thinking back on all the years.
Yet healing’s in the teardrop’s stain
which cleanses deep your grief and pain.
Life prevails beyond death’s door.
It lives in spirit evermore.
Yet as you grieve, your love for them
will never, ever, ever, end.
