The world is dark and lonely
when the ones you love are dead.
Your food is left untasted
and your books remain unread.
Your sleepless nights are empty
as you pace the bedroom floor;
your body aches with sorrow
and your soul is sick and sore.

In your pain and desolation,
take some time out to reflect.
Too much emphasis on mourning
shows your loved one disrespect.
Let them live on in your laughter,
put aside your anguished strife,
and enhance their hereafter
by continuing your life.
