There is a strange comfort in grief.

Perhaps because it blankets me.

No one sends flowers

For the death of a dream.

The absence of fragrance

Is like the absence of you.

What’s the point of breathing?

I do notice the strangest thing is happening.

As I cruise along toward home,

And business goes on as usual

For everybody else,

For some reason…

The soft music I’m playing in my car

Just sounds more beautiful.

Everything I see as I look around the world

Just seems more beautiful.

It is so strange

That at this sad time

The whole world should appear more beautiful.


And then I get it.

It no longer has competition from you.


John H. Bidwell

John, I found my father deceased a few years ago. His loss affects me every day of my life. About a month ago I was driving singing a Doobie Brother song and felt the warm sun going right through me! I can't explain it but the grief got better that day. When we release the tears and grieve we heal our heart. We have to love ourself and take comfort knowing we will get through anything! Take care, ~Chessly

So sorry for your loss, but glad you wrote this poem out of your grief, If I could send you a card or flowers to acknowledge your grief I would. In the words of my poem, "May God comfort you in this time of grief, and from your sorrow and pain give you relief. May God hold you so tight in his arms, and carry you at this time in his palms. God bless. Baz
