Grief is like a tidal wave that overtakes you,
Smashes down upon you with unimaginable force,
Sweeps you up into its darkness,
Where you tumble and crash against unidentifiable surfaces,
Only to be thrown out on an unknown beach, bruised,
Grief will make a new person out of you.
Oh, how true this was this Christmas. praying today that the “new person” will show up again.
