The power of sorrow

After a loss, we look for ways to cope, to grieve, to consolidate and continue. This I write after the loss of my mother.


Words type easy

Sentiment flows swiftly

But when the two collide?

Heartache and longing.

So, you write the former

Dip your toe in the latter

Try to avoid the stabbing hurt in the sucking morass of your loss

Will time soften?

You hope at least

That words you’ve offered oh so many times

Will ring true

Here

Now

For you.
