Thoughts on Grief XXII

I’ve heard it said

That grief is a passage

Not a place to stay

It’s the price of love

This implies that one

Should ‘get over’ the death

Of a beloved

.

Love never dies

Therefore,

Grief IS forever

Grief is NOT a passage

It’s not crossing a bridge

Or going through a tunnel

To get to the other side

.

Grief is like a perfect storm

Turning into a gentle shower

With breaks of sunshine

Through the clouds

Then at any moment

With any memory

The hurricane rages

.

It changes day-to-day

Moment-to-moment

.

Grief becomes a part of

Moving forward through life

A part of

One’s soul

.

Grief

Is the price of love
