Sadness: A Poem About Grief
For this week, I wanted to share a poem I wrote for my best friend and sister who passed away in February 2017. The pain never gets easier, especially when something like a birthday happens. I wanted to express those feelings in this week’s post. A poem I call, Sadness.
Sadness creeps inside my head
Within the thoughts of you not being here.
Your birthday passed on Sunday,
And I wanted to call you on the phone.
Then I realized you were gone!
So all I could do was cry myself to sleep.
I miss you, sister!
This pain doesn’t get easier.
Each time I think I have it under control.
My heart just aches more
For the moments we shared
Laughing and talking about life
And singing along to songs from our younger days.
How I miss those times.
This pain inside me
Is like nothing I have ever felt.
No matter how hard I try,
It is unbearable!
My only solace is trusting in my faith.
I pray to God to give me guidance.
Sadness creeps inside my heart
Knowing you are gone from this earth
Though I know you are in a better place, you are always with me.
