peggy Posted December 24, 2003 Share Posted December 24, 2003 Dear Bereaved Heart: The death of your loved one has forced you to start A new type of living That's hard on the heart Undecorating your life Of it's angers and fears Is not easy to do Without shedding tears And untying your guilt Can release a bundle of strife. Questions are stirred up About living and life. Don't be concerned now With invitations, big meals See how the little stuff Handles and feels. Let the love of your family, Neighbors and friends Uphold and sustain you When you're at loose ends Most eager to be there, Willing to share. Tell them your needs, And they'll show you they care. They'll take you shopping, Write cards, even cook. Let that stuff go now Get yourself off the hook. You need time for healing, You've much work to do. Your heart needs mending-- Give that gift to YOU. Take a walk , read a book, Try something your style Make sure it's relaxing, Makes you pause and rest awhile When holiday invitations knock at your door, Don't say "yes" to five When you only want four If you wish to remember Your loved one who died, Plant a tree, give a gift Let your heart be your guide This season of wonder Can bring you relief If you're willing to unwrap Your tears and your grief. Please listen, Bereaved Heart, Stay close and please dare To open your package And let others care. Signed, your friend To all the bereaved hearts on this board, I wish you peace this season.
