Loss of Father Poem

Journey Through Grief

My father passed away a few weeks ago, and I've been struggling with my grief. He was a kind man with a huge heart and a loving soul. He raised my sister and myself all alone and he did a pretty decent job. I wanted to reach out to anyone else who may be dealing with an astronomical loss and let them know they are not alone.

My heart's in pieces on the floor.
My brain, an electrical storm.
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
And yet, I try to smile.

Try to think of all the laughs,
The love, and all the lessons.
The long road trips and
All the late-night movie sessions.

The air is a thick, filmy haze,
But I still gasp and breathe.
There's raging whirlwinds up ahead,
As far as I can see.

The path is ragged, twisted, snarled,
But I must follow through.
For if I journey long enough,
I may, one day, reach you.
