A Year Ago Today (Moving Past Grief)


A year ago today,
my life came crumbling down,
my dreams, my pulse,
just stopped.
I had lost my heart.
found it hard to joy
hard to live, hard to breathe,
constantly thinking,
'what's the point?'
I had lost my beloved grandmother
the one who sacrificed everything for me,
the one who believed in me,
the one who inspired me
my hope was gone.
How could God do this?
the months rolled on
the grief rolled strong,
even yet,
I still found the hope to cling onto God
the months inched by
still grieving that sigh
my growth at a standstill
it feels,
but the whole time,
i was growing leaps and bounds
He continued to breathe life
was always by my side
and a year later I stand here taller
stronger, faithful, inspired and encouraged
with a will and zest for life
because that's what she would have wanted
that is what she sacrificed for
and that's what I'm made for.

You will get through this, keep fighting. Love, Stacie

"...to provide for those who grieve...a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3
