Moving on with the grief in hand

By | November 28, 2020
moving on with grief

Emotion welling up inside me

In the midst of grief how can I be happy

I’m not afraid of depths, storms or sharks

But I’m afraid of sinking into sea of missing some

It may take a life long to calm down from what I miss

The gravity of that life-changing loss is so heavy that

no words of comfort can take away the emptiness within

The more I play a hide and seek with emotions,

The gone ones will never comeback

thought just keep on entering pulling my heart out of chest

Moving on is such a word which is not as ease as said

I may grieve forever

I may not get over this overwhelming waves

But in a way that realization is relieving

‘that I don’t have to get over this’

I get that this is how it is

I understand that I am not gonna get over this

Though the grief is putting on a new face everyday

I have to move on with these flavors of grief in hand

as there are people waiting for my smiles and cuddles

moving on with grief

    Hey Akhi! Hopping on after a long time, how’ve you been?

    The lines are beautiful but why so sad? Hope all’s well with you.

      Ha.. happiness or sadness or madness, when it’s a part of life, we must accept it..isn’t it?

    Very interesting lines and I really appreciate the underlying positivity …

    The take is, ‘to move on”….
