Thoughts on Grief VII

 Four weeks
Seems like
a thousand years
and just yesterday
since you’ve been gone
 
Emotions
up and down
Remembering you
with joy and sorrow
 
Joy that
I had you in my life for 13.58 years
Joy for the
blessing of you
Joy for the
trials that brought us closer
Joy for the
laughter
Joy for the
experiences we shared
Joy for the
way You helped me grow
Joy for the
quality time we spent near the end
Joy for
your last day
Joy
that you are no longer in pain
 
Sorrow
that my life must go on
without you
 
My Joy
outweighs
my sorrow
But I Miss You
My Love
