When We Lose Someone in Pieces

Grief is an individual adventure. No two people are the same. Every person, every relationship is unique. So is every loss.

Each death or loss comes with its own special challenges. Losing a person in pieces over time is no exception.

An Open Letter to Time

Dear Time,

I hate you! You are not real. You are only an illusion and I know it. No great mystery, either, because we all know that you are not real.

Time does not exist.

Becoming me . Again.

My husband left this world on September 25, 2012. This was the last day of my life. For the past 3 years I have struggled daily with memories, guilt, remorse, anger, confusion and loneliness. Finally, I have been able to let go of MOST of these feelings. I was the best I could have been at that time with what I knew and had.


Since you've been gone

I keep thinking you're coming back.

I waited, day and night

But you never came.

Now...I am so torn...


I have had a few good days, i know who I am and I even know your name,

i could not figure out out why you were ignoring me and then I read my first poem,

"Who Am I" and I realized just how mean that I could be.

My hands are shaking, I can't seem to get even a drink,

i look around, what must people think?

i am just 57 years old and sometimes i don't know,

I don't know my name, and I most surely don't know yours,
