Grief Poem - Hold on


August 2, 2019

“Hold On! Hold On”! That’s what “they” say to those of us who grieve.

We’re s’pposed to grasp this life down here, though we just want to leave.


We could pretend stars are peepholes which only “work” one way.

Those gone ahead could sneak a look while we’re at work or play.


We need to make each moment count while we’re still above ground.

We MISS our dear, still we hold on but someday we’re East Bound.


Our heart counts days as this world fades – we wait to see your face.

 When we “come home” to be with you, ’twill be a brand-new place.
