Pixaby: Anna Gerdt

When a friend mentioned

that my sorrow was beautiful

I was taken aback.

In the midst of my grief and pain

I didn’t understand how

sorrow could be beautiful.

I thought about it and

realized that it is impossible

to mourn someone one does not love.

Deep love requires deep mourning.

To do any less would be

to deny that love existed.

To shove down the emotions would be to

forget that I loved deeply and

was loved deeply in return.

Grieving fully is

the best way to show love.

Grief never truly ends…
