Acceptance- Daily Prompt

When we lose the ones

We dearly love in death

At first it’s hard to 

Fully accept that they are 

No longer here on earth 

With us 

They are gone and we

Will never hear their voice 

 Or cuddle them again

As some time passes 

We gradually fill our 

Days and months 

With new memories 

And look back on the 

Old memories we 

Once shared 

Then eventually 

We begin to accept 

The void they have left 

In our hearts and embrace 

The gifts they imparted 

In our life until eventually 

We reach a state of 

Total acceptance 

Acceptance of their death 

And true appreciation 

For who they were and will 

Always be to us, then we 

Move forward with

acceptance while

surrendering and trusting

the process of life and death 

As we know it

      2. You are doing the best that you can, at the moment I am lost for words myself and can not think so I depend on the daily prompt for ideas on what to write until I am back to my old self again. It’s keeping my mind sharp, maybe you could try it out for now that you’re busy until you finish your project.
