The sound of running water
galvanizes the wound I endure
Since we met
No remedy could heal my injury
How stern are the woes of the desolate mourner
As he bends in still grief o'er the hallowed bier,
As enanguished he turns from the laugh of the scorner,
And drops to perfection's remembrance a tear;
~ SIZE ZERO ~ GROUND ZERO ~
Bereavement in their death to feel
Whom We have never seen—
I've quenched my lamp, I struck it in that start
Which every limb convulsed, I heard it fall
The crash blent with my sleep, I saw depart
Its light, even as I woke, on yonder wall;
But my bereavement-pain
It cannot bring again:
Twice no one dies.
He primmed his loose red mouth and leaned his head
Against a sorrowing angel’s breast, and said:
‘You’d think so much bereavement would have made
‘Unusual big demands upon my trade.
Will you walk with me to the brow of the hill, to visit the farmer's wife,
Whose daughter lies in the churchyard now, eased of the ache of life?
Queen, widowed Mother of a widowed child,
Whose ancient sorrow goeth forth to meet
Her new-born sorrow with parental feet,
The little feet have left the house,
The little voice is still:
Without, the wan wind-weary boughs;
Within, the will
When along the pavement,
Palpitating flames of life,
People flicker round me,
I forget my bereavement,
What is it, when we mourn and grieve and cry
for those we loved - and love - now passed away,
that gives our pain such brute totality?
THROUGH the long hall the shuttered windows shed
A dubious light on every upturned head;
On locks like those of Absalom the fair,
A pathetic tragedy I will relate,
Concerning poor Fred. Marsden's fate,
Who suffocated himself by the fumes of gas,
On the 18th of May, and in the year of 1888, alas!
When old Jack died, we staid from school (they said,
At home, we needn't go that day), and none
Pearl of delight that a prince doth please
To grace in gold enclosed so clear,
I vow that from over orient seas
Soft fall the February snows, and soft
Falls on my heart the snow of wintry pain;
For never more, by wood or field or croft,
Will he we knew walk with his loved again;
OUR neighbor of the undefended bound,
Friend of the hundred years of peace, our kin,
Fellow adventurer on the enchanted ground
look - kites dance secured
leashed like a skittish white lamb
bereavement and grief
are waiting in the shadows
As springs' budding blossoms emerge
the raptors glide mercilessly.
—Michael R. Burch
Rocking out in a garden of fields overrun with foolish weeds that had no caring or love anywhere around.
Lively echoes whispering in voiceless canyons of what used to be chambers of a heart.
Words of bereavement mentioned so often in this temporary life on earth.
Their only meaning being that you have done something
wrong or hurt a person's feelings.
Pain of Loss of someone you Love..30
Perception of bereavement
Justify the reality
Life does carry no meaning
I have a meeting with a stranger to search how I'm feeling. Connecting, dissecting, searching my mind, it'll be quite revealing.
Surprised how easy to find speaking to a stranger.Feeling safe, a friendly face this professional exchanger.
I pray for those Mothers whose grief is boundless
I pray for those Fathers whose pain is tremendous
I pray for everyone who has lost a brother or a sister
I pray for everyone who has lost a friend or a loved one!
