Broken Hearts by Land Leav – A poem from “Lullabies” (2014)

 

 

So power. I had people tell me this when I first lost my mom. “For now, all you can do is take your time. Take all the time you need.” It’s been over 5 years now. I am healing. I am living. I am happy again. I am still taking the time I need to grieve because grief can still sneak up on me.

Broken Hearts by Land Leav – A poem from “Lullabies” (2014)

I know you’ve lost someone and it hurts. You may have lost them suddenly, unexpectedly. Or perhaps you began losing pieces of them until one day, there was nothing left. You may have known them all your life or you may have barely known them at all. Either way, it is irrelevant — you cannot control the depth of a wound another soul inflicts upon you.

Which is why I am not here to tell you tomorrow is another day. That the sun will go on shining. Or there are plenty of fish in the sea. What I will tell you is this; it’s okay to be hurting as much as you are. What you are feeling is not only completely valid but necessary — because it makes you so much more human. And though I can’t promise it will get better any time soon, I can tell you that it will — eventually. For now, all you can do is take your time. Take all the time you need.
