What is grief?
It is a pain so deep
you have no idea where it begins
or ends
The dictionary gives you a description
but it cannot be compare
nothing makes it better
the company and support of
family and friends
We all grieve together
but alone
We all cry in unison
some openly, others in silence
all encompasses grief
a word so small yet so big
its meaning is brief yet prolonged
five simple letters
to describe pain, solace, despair,
unimaginable ache, heart wrenching,
tears, words of pain, sorrow, more pain
the list goes on and on
Where and when does IT stop?
IT never ends but IT subsides
and questions remain
