For Michelle

Grief
Author unknown

Grief is like a jagged rock
that you bury deep in your pocket,
It’s sharp edges forcing you to take it out and
examine it from time to time.
Even when you do not want to.
And when it is too heavy to carry,
you must ask a friend to hold it so you can rest.

As time passes it is a little easier
to take the rock out of your pocket.
It doesn’t seem to weigh as much.
Now you show it to a circle of friends
and, occasionally, even a stranger.
One day you pull out the rock and surprisingly,
it doesn’t really hurt as much.
For the edges are no longer jagged
but smoothed out by time, touch and tears.
