Instructions For Grief

when sadness like this comes along

there is only one thing to do

put you down on your bed

switch out the light

and feel it

take it as it comes

let it wash over you

one wave at a time

you might feel like crying

let the tears come

you may feel like screaming a little

that is okay too

if you feel like dying

just remember

that kind of pain

only comes to someone

who is very much alive

  1. I just got an email with very sad news. I sent this poem to my friend. I can’t get it out of my head. tearfully, tutu

    • Oh, Tutu….I am so sorry you have lost someone. I’m sorry you are hurting. I am glad that my words helped a little. That’s why I put them out there. I love you most! Lovingly, Courtey-O
