We understand that grief and loss is a natural part of life, but that doesn’t make it easier to face and feel.

As a matter of fact, grief is one of the most difficult emotions to allow to move through us.

Below is a poem by Donna Ashworth that we thought you would find soothing as you move through grieving.

“I Missed You Today”

I missed you today but that’s nothing new
I missed you a million times yesterday too
I picked up the phone to tell you the news
Then realized again, I can’t text you.

I saw your bright smile at least twenty times
and then I remember it’s all in my mind
I drive without presence, the world feels surreal
and on comes your song and this doesn’t feel real.

I missed you today but I miss you a lot
it’s helpful to miss you, it’s all that I’ve got
I wish I could pull you down here for a while
I fear I’ll forget the shape of your smile.

I miss you today and I’ll miss you tomorrow
there seems to be no coming end to this sorrow
I try to go on as I know that you care
I know that you’re willing me on from up there.

I miss you today but I’m trying to find
a way to move on but not leave you behind
a way to forge on with the love that we had
a way to recall you and simply feel
