GRIEF IS THERE EVERYWHERE

6-copy

Grief is there
When I wake in the morning
You are not there with me
Grief is there
When I go back to sleep
Your side of the bed is empty
Grief is there
When I hear the song I listened to
When I carried you
Grief is there
When I see a pregnant woman
Glowing with excitement
Grief is there
When I see a baby walk
For the first time
Grief is there
When I hear your name called
Someone else’s baby with that name
Grief is there
When my breast aches to feed
Your mouth that never opened
Grief is still there
When I crave a spicy food
Remembering how you loved it
Grief is there
Whenever
However
Whatever
Whichever
Everywhere
Surrounded by its grip
Overwhelmed by its hold
Burdened by its curse
Will grief let me go
