Thoughts on Grief XIV

 I used to look
to my love for support
Now I lean on my G-d
on my memories
on my family
on my friends
on myself
 
I lean into grief
because the only way
to get through the wilderness
Is to keep walking
keep crying
keep remembering
keep loving

It would be easy
to go into my head
to forget about people
The urge to close up
and stop crying
is strong
 
But I am stronger than
my introversion
because my love
taught me to be
open with my feelings
For that I am
Thankful Forever

So, I welcome the
Tears
I crave the
Memories
I will continue to write
I will live fully
Again
Life does go on
Eventually
