Grief Often gets in the Way

Grief often gets in the way
like a granite stone in a river
impeding the gentle sway
of the moonlight’s reflected silver

Sobbing with uncontrolled sorrow
which steals the breath away
wounded hearts forget tomorrow
will bring sunshine’s warm bouquet

Sadness, hidden deeply behind
longing eyes, searching to find
the joy, that once playfully lived
in a beating heart that thrived

Sometimes there is music
only grieving ears can hear
soothing melodies floating , the intrinsic
strum of a harp, angels hidden near

Lonely hearts long to fly away
held captive by a thief
familiar creature appearing each day
ominous and dark known as grief
