Coping with Illness and Grief
2/17/2011 4:44:33 AM
A book of poems for times of illness and grief, written by a retired Consultant Psychiatrist. Written primarily for children, the poems address many aspects of these sad times in life. However, adults can also read these poems and gain comfort from them.
As a psychiatrist, I worked with many people who were recently grieving or had unresolved grief from childhood or adolescence.These traumatic events can cause problem throughout life, unless the anger, sadness and guilt issues are addressed and resolved.

In the world of increasing breakdown of a stable marriage, where children are often torn between two parents they love, there is much grief, not only from death, but from loss.

Children coping with chronic illnesses can learn that,though a very personal experience, their situations and sadness a shared experience with many.

One short poem from the book, which helped a grieving young child who simply was not able to put her grief feelings into any words. This was simply read to her and a reaction was gained - a smile. Someone understood - a bit.

A Child’s Sadness


I am sad, so very sad
More sad than I can say
I want to run about
To sing, to dance, to play
But I cannot
So I am sad, so very sad
More sad than I can say
I want to smile and to laugh
And wipe the tears away
But I cannot
So I am sad, so very sad
But more I cannot say

Poem copyright ACoatesworth 2009
