Our mourning


Mourning is ever new and fresh,
each time someone lost like it is the first time,
its sharpness never dulls
as it cuts though all defenses,
there is sorrow, anger and deep rage,
all pious clichés wasted,
though faith and hope remain.

We are so civilized in our mourning,
no tearing of our robes,
or ashes in our hair,


No….

It is all muffled and quiet,
and many are left alone,
isolated in their pain,
for the awfulness of emptiness,
the deep hole that was once full
of a life, a light,
now gone,
though again
hope remains
amidst the inner chaos,
where only silence is the true consolation.

Is it a fools dream,
this hope,
I think not,
it is life after all,
this sh-t we all go through,
necessary perhaps,
this chipping away
of facades that cover
an ocean of sorrow.

Is it thus for everyone?
Yes I would say,
though those lucky few,
who are more aware,
they drink the chalice straight away,
the rest like me,
well we struggle along,
slowly coming alive
by life’s cruel jest.

Very thought provoking Mark. I think we each deal with death in our own way. Someone told me once that when she and her sister were laughing and joking after their mother's funeral, everyone looked at them in amazement, but she said it wasn't that they didn't care, far from it, it was just their way of coping with what was happening.

I agree, laughing about loved ones who have crossed, is not bad at all, but a form of showing love, as well as dealing with the pain of loss.
