Even though you don't want to.
The sad and sorrow hurts so bad,
But it's part of the healing process.
As the days go by the pain may lessen,
But they will never leave your heart.
Acting out and shutting down is part of the grief,
But it will not last forever.
Drinking and drugs will not help,
If anything else it will make it worse.
Given time things will get better,
Just take it day by day.
It's time to let them go,
They have been laid to rest.
