Grief

For as long as I can remember grief was a non-existant word to me.
I’ve seen people come.
I’ve seen people go.
But never a person who meant much to me.
But one day in the depths of my soul I felt a pain so unbelievable.
I thought to myself what could this be.
Could I be angry, mad, sad, or hateful.
Maybe what I was feeling was the feeling of being alone.
I wasn’t angry no not angry.
Upset yes, that was it I was upset.
But why was I upset?
Maybe someone was mean to me.
No that wasn’t it, then what was it.
Then it hit me, as hard as a rock.
For the pain I felt was that of a lost mother.
Now I know what grievance is.
It’s hurt it’s pain.
A feeling of loss within.
And I never want to feel this feeling…again.

    heartfelt verse – thoughtful words.
    You have my deepest sympathy for for the loss of your mother.
    The story was sorrowful, but you didn’t stumble. Writing about the grief was not the weeping but the courage to face the life. That inspire. Thank you
