Grief

Daily Prompt:  Constant

oceangrief

I wander around
This big house
Still looking for you.
I have so much to tell you.

You went away
So suddenly, I had
No time to say goodbye.
You couldn’t help it
I know.

Grief is my new partner.
Keeping you present
In my heart and mind.
I miss you.
How do I get over
This pain?

I can’t let you go
No matter how much
It hurts.
There was still so much
living for us to do.

The anger, the sorrow,
The loneliness, the emptiness,
Have become my
Constant companion.

They have become
Like an old friend.
One I can depend on.
One I can sit with
And cry.

I pray that one day
I will reach acceptance,
Maybe even understanding.
Until then, I put
One foot in front
Of the other,
Take one day
At a time, and
Do the best that I can.
