After They Are Gone

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

With the recent passing away of my beloved mother in law, every one of us in the family will definitely going to miss her dearly. We will no longer be able to spend of coming festivals with her especially during Chinese New Year where we normally celebrate at her home every year without fail. This coming Chinese New Year, we will have to made other plans. I found this poem by Joanna Fuchs which is very appropriate and meaningful.

When someone we love passes away,
We ache, but we go on;
Our dear departed would want us to heal,
After they are gone.

Grief is a normal way to mend
The anguish and pain in our hearts;
We need time to remember and time to mourn,
Before the recovery starts.

Let's draw together to recuperate,
As we go through this period of sorrow;
Let's help each other, with tender care
To find a brighter tomorrow.

By Joanna Fuchs
