Grief is like a river now

Slow and steady calm and bitter

To get to the other shore

I am stuck near to the shore

I'm not able to lift my foot

To move forward

Waves of sadness are strong

River wants to drift me away

More I resist, I feel overwhelmed

You can’t touch the pain

Which I carry it inside

Sometime it is draining my strength

Some days I can't do anything

Lost, and disconnected

I learned to lean on to this feeling

Deep down in my core, I believe

In the wisdom of my soul

Embracing this pain, agony with hope

Love and patience are needed now

Someday my pain will be gone

When I cross river and reach shore
