Grief

Darkness like a cloak envelops

Bringing comfort and relief.

No strength required or expectations

No need to mask the pain and grief.

Darkness like a cloak envelops

Bringing sadness, rage and fear.

Feelings overwhelm and heighten

The burning ache of loss is here.

The darkness holds the raw emotion

Surrounds it as it heals.

Calms and soothes as dawn approaches

In readiness to feel.

The warmth of daylight bringing purpose

A chance to build up strength and hope.

Gentle steps filled with kindness

The realisation you can cope.
