Grief is a Sea of Tears
These words came to me the day after my son died. They helped me so I thought I'd put them here in case they help anyone else. Please feel free to copy and share them.
Grief is a sea of tears that ebbs and flows. Now, so soon after that last goodbye, the waves are huge, engulfing me completely so I can feel nothing except sorrow, then retreating briefly, leaving me exhausted. But just as the real sea calms after a storm, so I know my grief will steady over time. It will never disappear completely. I will always miss you. But eventually I will be healed by the warmth of your remembered smile and once again be happy.
