That raw overpowering

feeling that enters your soul

when a person

you have loved dies and is

then lowered into a hole.

Knowing that you will

never see them again

fills you with fear for what

the rest of your life may contain.

They were the one that

you always looked up to

and the person

you sought out when life

was getting too much for you.

Now you are left to

navigate your own path,

to try and help others

in the emotional aftermath.

You have to summon up

the strength to carry on,

for their sakes you have

to learn how to be strong.
