Age Group: Adult
In loss, tears flow into a river,
flowing outward into the western lands,
like a beacon to those who have departed and they know:
they are loved and are remembered.
Open now is the gate of sorrow,
Let tears fall like rain to cleanse the soul.
Grief is the bridge to rebirth.
So shriek at the heavens and mourn your loss,
tear at your clothes and sob into the Mothers' breast.
Then take your love and wear it proudly,
let it shine amongst the heavens like a star,
guiding souls to the land of rest.
Author's Notes: Written originally in October of 2000 for an online friend who had just suffered a loss, this poem played an important role in my own healing when my grandmother died in 2001. I read this at her funeral, which I helped to conduct, and found a sense of peace and renewed meaning in the words. I hope that it might have the same effect for others who may be dealing with a most difficult time.
