Grief and Healing

written by: Gayl Wright



Grief is strong, coming
at awkward times
not caring about
how I may feel
But healing and light
slip in alongside

Tired and weary with
much to do, but
here I sit on the
front porch swing all
wrapped in hoodie and
blanket trying
to write a few lines

Cold and cloudy, the
sky seems tired, too
Wind blows strong sending
chilly fingers
right through my body
Why am I outside

Picking up my things
journal and pen
I rise to go back
inside where warmth
greets with welcome arms
while I write again

Longing for comfort
I cry aloud
trying to make sense
of everything
Then I remember
God is my stronghold
