Finding Gratitude in Grief
By Crystal Warren
After resisting for many years, I sat with my anger long enough for it to tell me it was actually love's gratitude disguised as grief. There to remind me that the loss and loneliness I felt was really the love in my heart longing to be held by you - to feel at home once again. So I hugged myself, until my pain gave way, and I collapsed into my own warm embrace. Finding solace as the tears released my fears. I remembered what I had forgotten all these years. I have been home all along, and no I am not alone. Where ever I go on my own, there you are - who needs a phone. I remember, we are one, and I carry you inside my bones. Alas, I am grateful for my grief, and it's reminder that this life is brief, yet oh so sweet.
