If you’re grieving…

This could be your experience


So sorry for your loss, they murmur

If there’s anything I can do…

I nod and shake their hands

And robot like, repeat thank you.

What else can they say?

It’s awkward to be near grief

Especially so raw

Time’s a terrible thief

I feel like I’m gliding

It all seems so surreal

Like this isn’t my life

Like I don’t know how I feel

Soon though I’ll be angry

That he left me on my own

That I didn’t go first

Into the unknown

Then I’ll sink into gloom

Though my tears won’t bring him back

I’ll want life as it was

Before it all went black.

It’s a lie, what they say

Time. It doesn’t heal 

You just have to cope

With life’s crappy deal
