Grief Unpacked Its Bags,
A Sudden and Unwanted Guest
With No Plans to Leave

Loss on Every Shelf
Sorrow in Every Drawer
Pain Beneath the Bed

We Could Not Quite Breathe
Wondering if That Moment
Might Not Ever End

But Time Does Still Pass
And Grief Turned Towards Us With
All Its Open Heart

And We Also Found
Among the Sorrow and Loss
A Shining Honor

The Consolations
Of Shared Memories, the Breath
Of Persistent Love

So It Turns Out That
This Life is not Perfect and
Grief is not a Guest

But Our Souls do Rise
To Every Occasion and
Our Hearts Will Reach Out

And We Will Carry
Honor, Memory, and Love
As We Find Our Way
