Grief

Grief  
     love’s lasting scar. 
Evidence of
     taking risks,
     making sacrifices,
     giving self,
     accepting life’s grandest gift.
Though its visible presence
fades with time 
it still 
and forever 
     tells the story,
     sings the song,
     speaks the truth 
of the one 
who is no longer 
here.
Show me 
     your scars. 
And I will share 
     with you mine.
Together we will
     laugh,
     cry,
     mourn,
     celebrate 
what it means
to be human;
what it means 
to be.
