Season's Greetings

As the year comes to an end,

And everyone has greetings to send,

And reserves a place for the New Year to spend,

I put a smile on my face and pretend

That I am okay, as no one can fully comprehend

My heartache, neither a relative nor friend.

Forgive me, loved ones, I do not mean to offend

But my wounds will never mend

Since my grief and my blood blend.

I wish I could my history amend

And the movement of time suspend

Not having to face another year's end!

Grief Expert

Sorry about your tragedy,
Did you get over it?
If not at all,
at least a bit.

Have you healed
and overcome your pain?
Hope not to see you
sad ever again.

You have survived
life’s biggest blow,
You should be able,
to let go.

She did not suffer
and quickly went,
Instead of extending
your misery and lament.

Thank God you have
the other two,
They must have made it
easier for you.

Push your sadness
and sorrow behind,
Only keep your surviving
children in mind.

My tears
started to flow.
Is she a grief expert,
and I did not know!

Tears Fall

Tears fall and I start to cry
Others are shocked! They don't know why.

They prefer to forget and ignore
That emotions can’t be locked indoor!

People accept laughter and joy
And let tears and sadness annoy

Many things trigger my sorrow and grief.
Tears give me comfort and some relief

Isn’t it enough what I went through?
They shouldn’t question what I feel or do.

I am lifting the barriers that suppress
All the feelings that I need to express.
