In Times of Sorrow
In times of sorrow and heartbreaking grief,
it’s hard to remember to keep your belief.
Behind the scenes there is a greater force,
guiding the events of one’s chosen course.
There is no perfect date or perfect time,
for loved ones who are left far behind.
Emotions and words cannot describe,
bewilderment or questions of, “Why?”
In times of sorrow you may not believe,
that over time your heartache will cease.
Through love and care of family and friends,
your strength will increase; your tears will soon end.
This is a time to remember the past,
your life together that flew by so fast!
Happy moments of laughter and fun,
not marred by anger or ever outdone.
Two souls experiencing lessons to share,
with purpose and focus, not to compare.
Beyond comprehending the ebb and the flow,
life proves delightful and easily shows.
In times of sorrow it is hard to perceive,
why certain loved ones are destined to leave.
The wheel of life is a game we all play,
it will call you by name on your chosen day.
But this is a day that the soul re-unites,
to a higher power as brilliant as light.
It’s a time to rejoice to the peace that this gives,
a joy that is shared for a soul that once lived.
In times of sorrow you’ll feel daunting fear,
but don’t let this block you, let others stay near.
Stay true to yourself and trust in your heart,
you are never alone and are never apart.
When you’re feeling lost things aren’t what they seem,
so pay close attention to all of your dreams.
During this state your energy blends,
with loved ones in spirit, for there is no end.
