GRIEF



GRIEF

Following is a quote from a Blogger-friend whose young husband lost finally his battle with cancer.  She lives on a part of our globe across the International Date Line.  I decided to post this poem. Also I am deciding this moment to post her blog address HERE in the sincere hope that her most deep, beautifully-worded inspired expressions may help someone who is out there grieving loss of a cherished loved one.

"......grief is what happens to your soul. It knows not age. There is a universal pain that one can always put a finger in it to say, I know that one too even though the details of our stories may vary. And we have yet found another gift of humanity. Compassion. And that's when we shed a tear for a stranger when we learn of their own loss." --Silver


I know a place
Where tomorrow always is
I see white curtains lace
Blowing in sweet breezes
Of tomorrow...today!

When in this my place
The sun daily at last sets
Forever at the same time
Your sun rises there
Because it is tomorrow

Always and forever
Tomorrow is there
Yesterday is never
And now I know why
God made it that way

Just so you could cry
Tomorrow, not today

So smile through tears
Of joy and tender love
For what's been all those years
Will be--is--even more, above
In heaven's perfect place
Today...and tomorrow

New moon, full moon,
A sliver of Silver Moon
A life here is beginning to stir
And from that rebirth soon
Will gush forth loving loveliness
From yesterday--in tomorrow

Writings of exquisiteness
Find themselves unleashed
Upon a world of cyberness.
Today's reminiscence--
Tomorrow's unchained thoughts

Fill us with your beautiful inner self
Empty all which blocks the sunshine
Which he continues to send
In complete total love...your Ben
Today, tomorrow
Forever.
 
--Steve

Beautiful poem and post.

Grief can hurt so bad; it's best when you don't have to go through it alone. Best to be blessed with people who are there with you.
