Grief and Healing

Time is one of the healers

of our hearts’ wounds


As we move through

stormy days and months

the repairs begin


Through our pain

nature moves in

stitching our hearts

back togetther


We start to see

color around us


Is it really ok

for us to work

and play?


Sometimes it feels scary

being pulled back

into life

without the person

we loved

so much


As we move

talking baby steps

one minute at a time

one hour at a time

we come back

to our lives

with the understanding

that we have changed


No matter how different

we are

know this

that the love

we had

is still with us
