Your Journey: AfterTalk Inspirational 10.31.19

Your Journey

Grief is a very long journey

a journey you take on your own.

And no one can know

all the sorrow you feel;

for it is your sorrow alone.

Grief is an awful intruder;

it comes and it stays

night and day.

And no one can look

at the way that you grieve,

and then tell you,

“No— this is the way.”

Anne Peterson
