"What is your definition of Grief?"
Just wanted to put it out there to start a discussion so others can chime in.. Grief is different for each and every one of us... What would be your descriptor for what you have experienced?................
To me the best analogy or descriptor I can think of would be:
A secret club we belong to, where we've seen mortality up close, and carry the scars, no matter how far we've come, and can recognize the unspoken pain in each other without speaking, and look at those who haven't traveled our way with an oddly detatched pity for what's to come for them.
Feel free to chime in with your opinions or descriptors..
As Always I wish you peace..
This grief is...
as a heavy woolen cloak
on a blistering August day.
as an aching tooth
with no relief in sight.
as a puzzle
with one piece missing.
as tangled sheets
on sweaty limbs.
as the mournful cry
of a dove without its mate.
as a mind gone blank
at exam time.
as a coat pocket
with a hole in the bottom.
This grief is...
by Eileen Auger
Memory can only tell us what we were,
in the company of those we loved;
it cannot help us find what each of us, alone, must now become.
Yet no person is really alone;
those who live no more echo still within our thoughts and words,
and what they did has become woven into what we are.
I wish you peace and a level path on your journey...
Having the wind knocked out of your sails.
Feeling totally alone even when in the company of many.
Hating to come home to an empty house.
Wondering what now becomes of all the future plans we had.
Needing to figure out who I amówithout him.
Knowing I will never, ever be the same.
Feeling like half of me is missing.
Waking in the morning to the thought that Im a day closer to him.
Being happy that I had a wonderful man for half my life.
Feeling sorry for people who are not happy.
Wondering where life will take me now.
Knowing how strong we can be when we have to be.
Realising that this can happen to anyone at anytime.
Realizing that tommorrow is not promised to anyone
Not putting off things you want to do
feeling like you are alive but not living
hoping that it has all been a joke and when you wake up tommorrow it would be like it was just a horrible nightmare
