We have witnessed grief first hand

It’s in the news for us to see.

We see sorrow seeping from out their pores.

We feel their agony.


A life was taken senselessly

one second there…and now it’s gone.

Their story ended prematurely

only their memory lingers on.


In time their grief will soften

they know not where or when

but when they do remember

the grief will rise again.


For the moment someone is taken from us

the moment their life is quelled

a part of those who loved them

dies that moment as well.


I imagine their only consolation

ss they wear their grief like a glove

is to remember grief is but an outcome


of the depth and wonder of their love.
