 Carol's Journey

Grief


NOTE:  I dedicate this poem to Debbie and all
others who have lost loved ones

--------------------------------

Grief is a process without bounds or timetable
Each person copes in ways they are best able
No one else can say how long grief will last
It is a step by step journey through the past

I have gone through the loss of both my parents
Others endure far greater I see as very apparent
No pain compares to death of a child to suicide
Or horrors of a terrorist attack, grips you inside

Do not be afraid to let your feelings out and cry  
Take all your hurts to God, even questions why
Writing your journey down helps to bring relief
Through your darkest days of sorrow and grief

Support of family and other friends who care
Brings encouragement to have a listening ear
Sharing with someone facing a similar loss
Provides reassurance when you feel so lost

Faith in God gives hope for each new day
Comfort and peace He gives along the way
God is always there, you never walk alone
Jesus carried all of our sorrows as His own

Isaiah 53:3-4 (ESV)
3 He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows,
and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide
their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
