My Sad poem

Poem called Loss

My heart is feeling heavy 

As we are grieving a loss family member on mom's side

As tried to give others the strength to get through this difficult time

As we prime our self to carry our lives

As wipe our eyes dry

You will also remain in our hearts

We have to  start the grieving process

    Hi @Globster

    You are more than welcome. We can all empathise with how difficult grieving can unfortunately be. I love a particular line of lyrics from Ed Sheeran's song Supermarket Flowers which is "a heart that is broken is a heart that has been loved so I will sing hallelujah". I always reflect on positive memories of the person I lost when I hear these lyrics. You will be okay, just make sure you take the time you need, look after yourself and get some rest :) And give yourself permission to eat your favourite foods! My favourite food was chocolate when I was grieving. What are your favourite foods?

    Hi @Globster

    Glad to hear you think writing poetry and communicating with us in the Scope community will support you through your difficult time! Hope you feel better soon  :) As always, we are here for you. However, I know writing for ourselves can be easier sometimes. Just do what you feel will help you the most!
