When all your tears have fallen,
And your eyes are done with crying,
It seems like you must move on from this heartache.
You continue on in life, get back into routine,
And yet, somehow, something just doesn’t feel right.
Did I grieve too long, or not long enough?
Did I bottle up my emotions too tight?
Did I think I was stronger or braver than I am?
What’s stopping me from picking up and moving on?
The problem, you see, is all doesn’t return to normal again.
Your life has been altered, forever changed.
What used to be, doesn’t work anymore,
You have to completely start again.
Starting again is a challenge. Anything new is hard.
But little by little,you start your new path, and you find a new way in this life.
Never again, will you be the same, forever changed is your heart.
You can’t pick up the pieces of a broken heart, you have to move on with a fresh start.
Some days will be easier than others, some days will be very hard.
Time doesn’t “heal all wounds,” time creates a new path to move from.
You can’t forget the loss you feel, it’s not what’s meant to be.
Love creeps in when we need it. And through prayer and love, God helps us heal.
It’s ok if you still need to cry, it’s ok if you are sad and confused at times.
Just know your loss is because you loved.
And love will never be the same for you, because you were blessed with a life of love.
You experienced loss from love.
Your heart will always save a piece of that love you lost, and you will be forever changed.
Changed in a way so that you can help others, and lift them from their losses.
Changed in a way so that you can show true empathy to those around you.
Changed in a way to know that life truly is too precious and too short, to hold grudges and get upset.
Forever changed somehow for the better, though your emotions feel raw,
What was meant to be, blessed your life.
And now you yourself, are free to bless others.
Yes, even when all your tears have fallen, you won’t forget how the grief felt,
You’ll spread love and peace around you, and realize, that life is meant to be lived. So that you can spread love and goodness to others.
