Grief is a heavy weight to bear,
A constant ache that’s hard to share.
It’s the emptiness we feel inside,
When a loved one has gone and we’re denied
The chance to say goodbye, to hold their hand,
To tell them how much they meant to us and
To hear them say they love us too.
But now they’re gone, and all we can do
Is try to carry on and find a way
To face the day and make it through.
It’s not an easy path to take,
But with time and love, our hearts will ache
A little less and we’ll find a way
To remember them and still be okay.
Grief is a journey that we must walk,
But we don’t have to do it alone, talk
To friends and family, share your pain,
And know that love will always remain,
A precious gift that keeps on giving,
A light to guide us through our living
