Tinker Posted April 9 Share Posted April 9 I PledgeI've had enough of grief.I prefer to forget the monthswhile he withered away,giving up bite by bite, step by step,until food was no longer viableand he was too weak to walk.After a year of strugglehe slid into death silentlywith me by his side.I prefer to forget the chaos after,the paperwork, our stuff comingled,the shop full of parts and tools,and the pain of dispursing his things.I prefer to remember 57 yearsof laughter, love, and challenges.This year, I renewmy commitment to live joyfully,to be grateful for each morning,for good health, purpose,love of family and friends,and an occasional adventure.Finally, I'm beginning to rest each night knowing I had a good day. ~~Judi Van Gorder Prompt: Grief 1 Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
