Poem: Suffering Grief

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Suffering Grief" is about someone watching a loved take his last breath as he passes away from this earth. There are no words to comfort his soul. Like a rainbow after a storm he remembers beautiful moments preserving them within his heart. He is devastated crying an ocean full of tears.

Suffering Grief

No words can comfort
his restless soul,
it’s a feeling of distress
too painful to soothe.

Like a rainbow after a storm,
beautiful memories, of moments long forgotten
play within his thoughts,
preserving them for all time,
wishing this storm had never come.

He feels an emptiness deep inside
as devastation overwhelms him,
wracking havoc on his emotions,
crying an ocean full of tears.
