A Poem by Bob B

When a loved one dies,

Our lives take a sudden turn.

It’s something we often forget--

Something we have to relearn.


Reasons and explanations

Remain beyond our ken.

We learn our lives will never

Be the same again.


Our heart, laden with sorrow

And pushed to the point of breaking,

Becomes overwhelmed

With painful, relentless aching.


Memories might console us

And give us some relief,

But nothing can prevent

Another visit from Grief.


When he pays a visit,

He tells us he's our friend,

Although his true intentions

Are hard to comprehend.


Quietly, he approaches
And whispers in our ear,

"Know that in the future

I will always be near."
