My poem of grief

Published by

Seeing you lie there,
no movement, no life, no soul
broke my heart and
pushed me to the ground.
I began to cry and reached for love
but the one i loved had gone away
leaving me alone
to face the ever trying day
My head knew you were gone for ever,
but my heart held onto the hope you were just sleeping
for the all moments I saw you alive,
was a treasured moment worth keeping.
Now I need to let go for good,
but it is the hardest thing to do,
to let something go you love,
to have nothing there and nothing to do.
I had never loved something so dear
and for days i let my tears flow
until the realization hit me,
I had to let you go.

  1. Jessica,
    it takes a while to let go and you don’t have to let
    go right away!! it takes a while to let go so just
    give it time!

  2. Fabulous poem. When I read this, it brought back the memory of my darling daughter's violent death, and the way I had to let her go.
    I’ve been over her death for a number of years, but do get a little depressed on her birthday. This poem will help around that time of year.
    thank you for writing it.
