We've all been there and even though, at the times, we doubt that we'll survive, we eventually come out the other side a changed person.


 

GRIEF
 
Grief is a lonely road
we travel in a daze,
not quite understanding
why we’re in this place.
 
Friends want to help
but they can’t understand
how this incredible pain
carries us to an unknown land.
 
Grief is a lonely road.
We travel it all alone.
We’re lost and so bewildered
not wanting to go home.
 
Family gathers round,
sorrow in their hearts.
They bring small comfort
as they try to do their part.
 
Grief is a lonely road.
We travel night and day.
It always stays with us,
as we attempt to find our way.
 
Loved ones bring hugs,
wanting to see us smile.
Someday, perhaps we will,
but not for quite a while.
 
Grief is a lonely road,
seeming to never end.
But one day there will be a light
just around the next bend.

I've been there many times, and this expresses that unfortunate experience very well. The ending is hopeful, and comforting to anyone passing through that place though! Very good poem, Donna.

Having recently lost my father, I understand this well. Sadly, everyone will go through this grief and will come to understand it first-hand, the loss of someone you love hurts to the very core and nothing can change it. But there is hope when there is caring. Emotional piece. ~Best, Elizabeth

Donna,
AMEN to this preceptive poem. Most of us have been there, I have many times. God has always got me through all my trials, Donna.

Many blessings,

Beautiful Donna, The halls of grief are long and made of the hardest stone. Unknownto he who is the griever, as is a great wound, 'tis the place from where our healing starts.
Reviewed by Chip Bergeron 8/31/2011
Makes me sad and want to share your grief. Just remember that when we feel most alone, that's when we realize that we are never alone, hard as it is to feel.

Such an amazing poem, with words so true, It sure is a lonely road, was the anniversary of my boyfriends death this week, I am not in contact with his family or anyone who knew him to grieve with. Have felt unbearably alone. Your story gives me a glimpse of hope though, thank you for writing such a sensitive poem. God bless. Baz

Nicely done & well said.

Grief most definitely is a lonely road, but good friends help to lessen the burden.

Thank you for always being there. Dick

Grief is a Lonely Road - how so very true. And coming out of it, is always a blessing.

Grief is a lonely road but I always took comfort in the fact that if the death made me so sad then I must have loved and been loved by them very much.

Yep. There is always a light, you just have to search for it, hold back and wait for it, or make a light of your own. However you choose the light will always be there for you.

Nice poem. Excellent wordplay.
