A poem about grief. Very powerful. And very true. I need to remember this so that I can be a better friend to others experiencing grief, and so that I may understand my own if I should feel it. And I hope other people will also understand this.
In my senior year in high school my mother passed away from cancer. I only had a handful of weeks with her after she got that diagnosis. When she passed it sent me into a deep grieving state and i did not do very well in school the remainder that year.
