Grief Finds You

Grief finds you
Just when you think
you’re free
when you think
you’ve buried it completely
or washed it away
or cursed it off
or sang through it
in joyous revelation.

Grief finds you
when you think
it’s been too long
or gone for good
when you think
you’ve adjusted
to the hand you’ve been dealt.

Grief finds you
turns your up
upside down
piercing deeply
into your core.

Grief finds you
shakes you
YOU
the unshakable
and now
you can’t stop
shaking.

Grief finds you
hugs you
holds you
cries with you
embraces you
like an old friend.

Grief finds you
lifts you
through the mud
and murky waves
above it all
watching
breathing now
together.

Inseparable.

You
and Grief
can not
be made
strangers
again.

And in
this company
a new
still
clear
quiet
spaciousness
unfolds.

As you become
the love
you were
always
meant
to be.
