when we lost
we were shells
our raw pain
unable to help
I let you down
when you needed

and sharing your voice
Loss and stress can cause so much isolation. But I feel we sometimes need to grieve within ourselves in our own way. And then maybe we can grieve with others. My parents had this issue too. My Mum busied herself, and my Dad went on long walks and day trips to look at the sea. Probably wasn’t a lot of help to her, but he needed to sort his head out. His head wasn’t her head, and two people can’t always be a perfect ‘one’ all of the time. It’s an excellent subject to share Geo, I’m sure this is a very common problem. 🙂
