Pain never done.

Echoes of loss,
Searching for light,
But healing is a slow process.

From grief into recovery,
A path we all must don.

Medium Poems

Waves of Grief

Waves of grief crash over me,
An endless, relentless sea.
Each day brings a different tide,
As I struggle to keep my head high.

Sometimes I can barely breathe,
Other times I feel some relief.
But always lurking beneath the surface,
Is the pain that I cannot surface.

Grief is an ocean, deep and wide,
And in its depths, I try to hide.
But one day, I know I’ll rise above,
And find the calm after the stormy love.

So for now, I’ll ride the waves,
And find strength in my faith that saves.
One day, the shore will be in sight,
And I’ll find peace in the morning light.

Healing Time

The road to healing is a long and winding trail,
And sometimes my strength begins to fail.
But I know that each step gets me closer to the end,
Where a new beginning and hope can be found again.

With every tear I shed, I’m washing away the pain,
And slowly, I’m learning to love again.
I’m putting back together the pieces of my heart,
And allowing time to play its healing part.

The journey is hard, but it’s worth the fight,
As I emerge from the darkness into the light.
I may stumble and fall along the way,
But I know that I have the strength to find my way.

So I’ll take my time and let my heart heal,
And let the pain slowly start to peel.
Eventually, I’ll find my peace of mind,
And a new, stronger self I will find.

Long Poems

A Journey Through Grief

A heavy weight upon my chest
My heart aching, never at rest
I thought I’d never find my way
Through the darkness of each day

In the beginning, all was numb
Silent screams, tears did come
My mind was lost, my soul adrift
In a sea of sorrow, unable to sift

Through the memories, the love we shared
All the moments that we had bared
I couldn’t let go, I wouldn’t move on
My grief consumed me, until it was gone

But then a glimmer of light appeared
A ray of hope, my soul cheered
I reached out for help, for someone to guide
Me through this journey, no longer to hide

I found a hand that held me tight
A warm embrace that felt just right
A voice that said it’s okay to cry
To feel the pain, to ask why

Slowly, I learned to take each step
To walk through grief, to not regret
All the moments that we had
To honor your memory, and not be sad

And as time went by, I realized
That healing isn’t a straight line
It’s a bumpy road, with twists and turns
But with a heart that’s open, one can learn

To accept the loss, to find peace
To let go of the pain, to release
The tight grip of sorrow and grief
To find the love that brings relief

And though you’re gone, you’re still here
In my heart, you’re always near
A part of me, that will never fade
Through this journey, my love, I’m not afraid.

Life After Loss

A heart once whole, now shattered into pieces,
A life once bright, now covered in darkness and creases.
Grief washes over like a tidal wave,
Leaves one lost, with nothing left to save.

The pain, the ache, the emptiness within,
Trying to find a way to heal and begin again.
Visions of the loved one, once so alive,
Now a distant memory, hard to revive.

Learning to live life without their presence,
Seems like an unbearable, unfair sentence.
The heavy burden, too much to bear,
Seeking out comfort, but it’s just not there.

Faith, hope, and love, guiding the way,
Slowly finding solace, day by day.
The journey of healing, a long and winding road,
But with each step, a new strength bestowed.

Learning to lean on friends and family,
Opening up to those who care dearly.
Accepting their love, a step towards peace,
As the pain and grief begin to release.

The memories still hurt, but also bring joy,
Cherishing the moments, a life to enjoy.
The grief will never truly go away,
But with healing comes a new way to stay.

Living each day with purpose and meaning,
Honoring the lost one, and their deep meaning.
Finding a new normal, and new ways to cope,
Embracing life, slowly recovering hope.

Life after loss is a journey we must take,
A painful process, but one we must make.
The road may be rocky, with twists and turns,
But with faith and hope, we will surely learn.

Learn to live, love, and cherish each day,
Honor the loved one, in our own special way.
Healing comes, not by forgetting the past,
But by embracing it, and moving forward at last.
