Grief – Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for the ability to grieve. It’s not something people usually think about when someone or something is gone. Being able to grieve is a gift that we don’t think about.

Some cannot cry
They sit and wonder why
No tears will flow
Their hearts can’t let go
They keep trying
Some continue crying
Wanting to be free
To let themselves be
Learning to grieve
To find something to believe
Doesn’t mean you forget
Doesn’t mean you don’t regret.

Remember to check out the original Thankful Thursday.

    Beautiful Martha. It is a gift and we each go through it differently.
