(Welcome again to my world of sadness.)
Or shall I say, "Good Mourning!"
As I celebrate my child who brought me gladness...
As I remember my child's and my love for one another…
Must they slow?
No! Such is the life of a Grieving Mother!
Do not let the world tell you your tears are bad ~
Our tears are simply God's reminder of what we had ~
Every grieving mother knows
Cherishing our child's love is worth being sad!
So until we reach Heaven, our tears must flow!
The tears that represent our sacred treasure,
others ~who are blind~ will call "fools gold"!
As our Lord said, "Blessed are those who mourn" ~
We, of all people then, are blessed beyond measure!
Poem - Good Mourning! - Angie Bennett Prince - April 2, 2016
Grief is not a disease;
it is not an illness;
it is not depression.
It is, in fact,
Grief can only
be a disease
if love is.
~Dr. Joanne Cacciatore,
fellow psychotherapist and grieving mother
