Drifting on water
In the darkness alone
Surrounded by engulfing black nothingness
Waves that rock you to nausea
Power that overcomes you and your vessel
No direction to go or person to call
No water to hydrate and no desire to drink
Nothing that soothes you or means anything at all anymore
No friend that can reach out or rescue you from it
Just when you are sure you will drown in the vast sorrow
You see the smallest glimmer of light and wonder if it is true
Could there possibly be any hope now after all that has happened?
A direction to follow and guide out of the sickening pain?
If only I could possibly jump from here to there
Yet the boat floats on rather than jumping ahead
The only way is to journey through it
To strive in darkness to the light
To accept the engulfing frightening waves
To float when too weak
To allow the journey
To travel to light
Knowing you changed

You hit the nail on the head as we say when describing grief. Been 2 years now since my mom passed. I have a fantastic sister and a great group of friends through my church. But when grief strikes it does not seem to matter. The fog reamerged after I just lost a dear friend from a heart attack he was just 56. I do find comfort from your blog. Somehow I do not feel as isolated in my grief.
Thanks So much,
