womanWe all need time to grieve--
quiet time for reflection
to sift through memories
and come to grips
with what has happened.

We all need a time for tears
not for the one who is now
at peace in heaven,
but for ourselves as we realize
that things will never be the same.

We all need time to just "be",
when we can open ourselves to God
and let the reassurance
of His everlasting love,
start to heal our broken hearts.
