Is it surrender or acceptance that I feel?
When I know your gone, but I wish it wasn’t real?
When I walk in your home, and wish to see your face?
When there is an emptiness, a void, that cannot be replaced?
Have I accepted that you are truly gone?
Does going to work mean that I have moved on?
Have I accepted that the world has changed?
That our lives have now and forever been re-arranged?
Have I reached acceptance?
That mysterious fifth and final stage?
I accept and believe that this is not the end
I accept and believe that I will one day see you again
Side-by-side-by-side, our family will reunite in Heaven
Side-by-side with Christ, who has rescued and forgiven.
In honor of my Papa who passed away last year, January 14th, I will be re-posting my grief poems in the hopes that those who read these poems know that they are not alone and that our loved ones are not forgotten.
