A Room Full of Tears Poem by Lyn Paul

As I stand in a room full of tears
At this Funeral today
Just feeling your pain, Your loss
Yet amazingly
With this heartache
I feel, The Power of Love
Crying for open arms
The need to bond
To take over this unbearable pain
This pain that feels
It will never heal
How hard to bare this pain
Cry..Cry... Cry..
Never to understand... Just Why?
Why death? This loss. Just why?
As you share this pain
You open your heart for acceptance
In time along with healing, love & memories
Acceptance will grow....
Tears today, tears... for many days
In sunshine and in rain
I will not forget
This room full of tears

    The outpouring of emotion is so cathartic, especially at a time of great loss... can totally relate to this I am certain many other's do, as well. PEACE (Report) Reply

    a very moving poem as it hurts to see others hurting and not be able to ease their pain no matter how badly you may wish too... (Report) Reply

    Well written poem on a difficult subject.
    Having been through bereavement I know only too well the feelings involved.
    Still well done anyway. (Report) Reply

    This is a big question-Why death? But, this is inevitable. We all know. Very vivid expression. No ambiguity. Loved. (Report) Reply

    Tender subject very well and feelingly drawn Lyn. Owain's right, it's a subject we all should be more familiar with and less awkward about. I'm inclined towards the old Irish custom of the wake, where the guest of honour turned on a keg for the crowd. That way, a feller might get a more flattering number of mourners. Would be interested in knowing if you've been to any and have written about the experience. (Report) Reply

    You have covered this subject well. I do not think we discuss death nearly as much as we should.
    I have no more knowledge than anyone else about what comes after but I do think death should be a celebration and that we should feel the excitement of the unknown. Maybe that would destroy some of the fear. (Report) Reply
