Surrender to Grief

"Be not afraid to feel

though grief may overwhelm you.

Its breath gives life to your loss

its thoughts to your precious memories.

Be not afraid of pain

though tears may consume you.

By allowing them, flowing with them

may they carry anguish softly away.

Be not afraid of change

exposed though you may feel.

Awaken to new directions

fuelled by their love and dreams for you.

One year on - and into your future

stand bravely


As time passes

as grief loosens its grip

may their hopes for you

energise and inspire you

and colour all your tomorrows".

Sharlene, 2016.
