I wanted to share this


An Afterloss Creed

Please be gentle with me for I am grieving. The sea I swim in is a lonely
one, and the shore seems miles away. Waves of despair numb my soul
as I struggle through each day.

My heart is heavy with sorrow, I want to shout and scream and
repeatedly ask "Why?" At times, my grief overwhelms me, and I
weep bitterly, so great is my loss.

Please don't turn away or tell me to move on with my life. I must
embrace my pain before I can begin to heal. Companion me through
my tears and sit with me in loving silence. Honor where I am in my
journey, not where you think I should be.

Listen patiently to my story. I may need to tell it over and over again.
It's how I begin to grasp the enormity of my loss. Nurture me through
the weeks, months and years ahead. Forgive me when I seem distant
and inconsolable. A small flame still burns within my heart, and shared
memories may trigger both laughter and tears. I need your support and
understanding. There is not a right or wrong way to grieve... I must
find my own path.

Please, will you walk beside me?
