Perpetual Grief.....Tears


When I begin to feel better, sigh with relief

I'm back in the spin of ... never-ending perpetual grief

I can't seem to be free of pain through all these years

I have learned my best friends are grief and tears

I've always been told to choose my friends with care

watch out for 'bad' people, just beware

Never did I hear of the 'friends' that chose me

Perpetual grief, tears that won't let me be

Perpetual grief, tears that dominate my life

while I keep trying to be a good person, a good wife

They threaten to overwhelm me, pull me down

I get up, dust my pants as I ... look around

Life... I will meet you 'head-on', you've hurt me so much

I still love you, I'm positive too, happy colors and ... such!

Perpetual grief... and tears... I will know always

I'm going to be alright, I mean to for the rest of my ... days

  1. This weekend is probably going to be rough for you. This I already know. Even though the weather is going to be nice, your colors will be dark and grey. This weekend is going to dampen your heart. Anyone that knows what this weekend is, will know you will be going back in time to remember your son. I remember your son too. He was a very fine young man and as such, God just wanted that angel. I wish I could do something to ease your pain but I know this is something you will deal with in your own way. You know I am always here/there for you! May God heal your heart and be with you as you go through this time. Love, Ms. Nancy
