Thoughts on Grief VIII

 Grief
Is not something that should be
Stifled
Stuffed down
Put out
Moved on from

Grief is a necessary part of
Healing
Growth
Finding Joy in the little things
Remembering
Laughter
Becoming radiant again

The hole in my heart
is there for a reason
The impact my love made on my life
is forever a part of me

I must learn to live this new life
This new chance
Learn these new lessons
To face today one second at a time

With joy
For the past
For the now
For the future to come
