Closure - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Resolution of a chapter
Conclusion of a phase
Can any words or actions
Truly purge sorrow’s gaze
The word is used too liberally
To ease the mourner’s mind
As if all painful memories
Are magically behind
There can only be one closure
Don’t tell me otherwise
The only way to lasting peace
Last closure of one’s eyes

    You so completely understand
    The human heart and condition,
    The pain we feel for a loved ones lose
    Is the mourner's lifetime cross.

    Very touching and well written poem
