Grief Poetry: The Next Chapter

I can remember your face

like it was yesterday,

Your piercing eyes and gentle smile,

Oh, how beautiful you looked,

as you sat there with your book,

reading each page,

and taking in each sentence,

while you quietly sipped the rest of your coffee,

Being your daughter gave me such joy,

A joy that I can never get back,

While its hard to accept

that chapter has ended,

I realize a new one has just begun,

One just as funny, happy, and fulfilling,

And unlike the last,

In this chapter, your spirit will be with me through it all,

not just for a day,

a week,

a month or even a decade,

but for an eternity,

and until the beautiful day when we shall be together again,

Give me the strength I need to continue forward,

filling this next chapter with more wonderful memories

to share with the ones I love.


Love you mom,
