Allison...

i don't have much to add....as everything has always been done...just find the comfort in music...and in poetry...it has always helped me....try writing out your grief in ways...write about the things you remember...the things you loved...in poetry or various essays...even in songs...

i wrote this after my cousin Sue suddenly died of a heart attaack...

empty chair


A voice gone quiet an empty chair
Sunlight filters through the curtains
Tears slowly drips down the cheeks
As eyes stare at the empty chair...


A silvery form shines in the sunlight
Sitting in the vacant cushions
Forever watching over those
She had to leave behind


Hands clasp with the shimmering shade
As paths entwine once more
Feet dancing in the roads
As hearts beat together in remembrance
