3 Stages Of Grief Poem by Bridgid Patrick

3 Stages Of Grief

Rating: 4.2

The Torment

Sorrow swalowed me into the cruel black sea,
The icy cold water washed over me,
Memories spin around in my mind,
Causing dark lucid dreams of every kind.
Grief and misery played their part,
Leaving behind a broken heart

The Healing

Slowly the water ebbed away,
The blackness mellowed to a shade of grey,
Time as the healer showed the way,
Helping me to cope day by day,
Fear subsiding, confidence riegns,
Ready to face the world again

The Future

The waters now are calm and clear,
My life again is full of cheer,
Smiles return and with them light,
The grey is replaced by colours so bright,
Though life was cruel, when it took you away,
I look to the future as a brand new day

An excellent rendition of the emotions we go through. Good rhyme and pace too. Particularly related to the first stanza and re lived those feelings that I had when I lost my dad. Nice work Gyp's
