I have just like many others have experienced a terrible bereavement recently and I rarely speak about it. Grief is so hard to explain out loud.
I hope this claddagh poem can provide some comforting words to anyone in the same position.
Remembrance of a Loved One by IJD
I miss your bright blue eyes
That shone like sapphires in the sky
But now they're closed and you're not here
Leaving me with nothing but a tear
I wear a blue sapphire ring
A symbol of the love we shared
A claddagh to remind me of you
And the way you always cared
But now you're gone and I'm alone
With nothing but a memory
Of all the love and joy we shared
Now just a distant dream for me
Though you may be gone, my love
Your spirit lives on in my heart
I'll hold on tight to all we had
And keep you close, even though we're apart.
