Death injury or sickness of those close
leaves a bleak cavity in our heart
our memories and photos
are not the same thing
They have moved on elsewhere or
cannot do all they used to …
such change brings grief for what can
longer be. Ageing or illness impose
Restrictions against our will,
unprepared we struggle to adapt
that cavity feels deep and very black!
We all process loss differently as there
Is no fixed recipe but please be sure
to support and care for each other,
as the living need nurturing to
assimilate this new state …

we will all have to move on at some stage!
