Grief - grief-loss


I didn't know a heart could die
before it clogged beating.
I didn't know a life could cease
before it closed breathing.

I didn't know how devastation
could wend a alive soul
I didn't know how death could make
one lose all self control.

I didn't know the pain of loss
was so intense and sharp.
I didn't know the depth of void
death foliage contained by the heart.

I didn't know how often tears
would color hurting eyes.
I didn't know how hard it was
to say one's last good-bye's.

I didn't know that pain would come
and go as it well pleased.
I didn't know that joy is scarce
to those who are bereaved.

I didn't know that time would stop
and consequence cease to be.
I didn't know that links would pray
but shy away from me.

I didn't know how difficult
to get the whole night through.
I didn't know the asset it took
for down-to-earth tasks to do.

I didn't know that as time pass
slowly, the pain subsides.
I didn't know what I belief was lost
still in my heart resides.

Now I know a barely spark,
somehow in me remained.
Now I know that someway,
my life will be sustained.

Now I know the feelings felt,
were all a part of grief.
Now I know how burning prayer
helped me to find relief.

So rest cool my nameless friends,
though medicinal comes real slow.
It in point of fact does get better
for now, I truly know.

Yes I survived my loved one death
that occurred this time last year.
I feel the loss and all the time will
but the pain's much less severe.
