Another Normal Day

Grief & Grieving

I awoke this morning,

the sun was again shining.

How could it be another normal day,

when I am still crying?

The birds were singing,

without a care.

I asked them, "How could you?

How do you dare?"

The children were laughing,

as if any other day.

I wondered to myself,

"Why?..When Gram has gone away?"

The world was still moving,

at its regular pace.

And I was so offended,

didn't they see the grief on my face?

Suddenly, it was though, I heard HIS voice,

and then I smiled,

"Fear not, for she is with Me now,

My precious little child."
