Statements to help a mourning heart

The COVID pandemic has left many people grieving lost loved ones. I wrote this poem a long time ago and it has helped me deal with the death of loved ones.


Write their names on to stars.

So that they will forever be shining over you.

Infuse their personality into the air.

So that when tears are the only form of communication you can muster.

Go outside and allow the wind to embrace you.

That's them saying " you will be ok".

Transfer their spirit into your footsteps.

The ground will sing and praise their name and their memory.

When you are sad.

When the chambers of your heart are scared of life.

When all your body can do is think of death.

When your lungs can not find the strength to breathe in life.

Look around you.

They are in the air, the sky and the ground.

They will never leave you.

They will never leave you.

They will never leave you.

Hold their words on the tip of your tongue and on the palm of your hands.

People will see them in your words and in your actions.

They will never leave you.

They will never leave you.

They will never leave you.
