Grief has always been a never ending road. It never stops, always evolving along my path. The word,one syllable; has so much meaning, and not enough words to describe. It’s not easy to roll off the tongue, as it is to pull your heart out and show a person what grief means to them. “No one ever told me that grief felt so much like fear.” C.S. Lewis
It awakens you to parts of your life you haven’t met yet; and reminds you of the parts you have lost. With the ones you love; through traumatic life altering events and more. It pushes the ever pressing search among hearts to look for more to life than what meets the eye, and to find connections alike where hearts understand, take time to listen, and have the capacity to be there for you when you really need someone most.
Amongst the grief I have felt and lived through, I would have to admit and say even though I know I have my people I can turn to, it can feel like it’s a lonely road at times.
I think I am writing this to let you know, you aren’t alone. I am here for you. So is your dog. Or Cat. And the moon.
