Allow Yourself – Day 10 #OctPoWriMo

These are the lessons I learned about coping with bereavement.

Allow Yourself 

.

You’ll make it through if you…
Allow anger to
Kick away the iron grip
Of loss, loss, loss…
And permit mirth to
Taint your rainy day
With sun drops, open arms
 -like ripened fruit.
Allow yourself a single
Smile, amongst
flooding tears, which might
drown, drown, drown…
As well as one hour’s
Sleep – respite – concord
Though that hour be
punctuated with such
seeping wounds.
Allow at least
One true heart
entry into yours
– As wrecked as it is –
For eventual restoration,
With kindness &
time, time, time.
And if you could also sanction
One solitary hope –
 – that you’ll make it through –
You will –
 If you allow it.

Love to read your comments folks.
