I Guess I Expected Grief to be Easier

I must be dumb. I keep expecting life to be smooth, even when I’m grieving.

I know I expect “smoothness” because I get upset when life is bumpy. Silly. Life has always been bumpy.

I Feel Depressed

Hearts are by nature vulnerable. They have to be in order to be capable of love.

Christmas In Heaven

How do they celebrate Christmas in heaven?

Do the angels sing in harmony

Is there such a thing as a Christmas tree

I wonder do you think of me

On this most special day?

I remember how we'd celebrate

The things we bought the food we ate

The excitement with which we'd wait

For this most special day.

Now I must spend it on my own

Ashes Release Prayer Poem

As the wind picks up your ashes

And they fly throughout the air

Look For Me Inside Your Memories

Look for me inside your memories

Where I left you with my love

Look for me within your heart

When Everything Reminds Us

When we’re missing someone, we tend to bump into them everywhere.

“What do I miss?” Andrea asked. “Everything! I miss everything. Everything reminds me of Aaron.”

“It doesn’t matter where I go or what I do, he’s gone. And it keeps hitting me in the face over and over and over again,” she continued.

I'm Not Moving On, I'm Moving Forward.

I've grown to hate the phrase "move on." For me, I've always mostly connected it in terms of relationships.

Is There Still Good Out There For Me?

When we experience something good, it seems to be human nature to try and duplicate it.

“Last time it was wonderful. I’m going to do it the same way again!”

“God answered my prayer when I prayed that way. I’ve found the secret. I’m going to pray like that every time!”

“It was awesome the last time we did that. So we’ve planned to do it again!”

How do I move forward

How do I move forward without guilt?

Taking into account all that we have built!

Alone, confused, conflicted!

That’s how I feel everyday, my brain is twisted!

My thoughts are in competition with my heart to see which can form the most knots.

Move forward?

How can I do that without you?
