Grief is a Witness

Grief never ends
It becomes part of you.
Grief witnesses new joys,
new losses, new loves,
new heartaches, new choices,
new mistakes.

The list is endless.

Everything is new.
Memories have a new life,
a new color, a new insight,
because a new and different you
experiencing the memory.

Time will not heal all wounds.
Nor should it.
There will always be an eternal bruise,
reminding you to be gentle with yourself, and others.

And reminding you of the journey you’ve traveled.
Both the joy, and the pain.
And point you to who you will become.
