A Poem by Starbound25

the process
taking the time to grieve
the blood curdling screams
the hysterical sobbing
crying on the floor
in the fetal position
afraid my insides will come
pouring out
find the strength each day
to wash the children
to feed the children
to love the children
then night comes
the quiet
the ear piercing quiet
the empty side of the bed
I feel the grief trying to enter
but I push it away
too much, too hard, too strong
I put up a fight
but is it much too strong
and again I fall down
into the darkness of it all
and grieve

I am so sorry for your loss. I couldn't imagine losing my Husband, even though I have experienced loss. Him and my daughter, I truly don't know how that would affect me, I suppose something like this...or worse even. Writing does help with the pain. I hope you achieve your dreams in life. Know he's always looking out for you and would want you to be happy in life. Your grief was very well expressed.

I love this poem.
This is exactly how I feel about my grandmother who just recently passed away.
You expressed it well.
