Faces of grief Doves of Release

by Hope
(Tappahannock VA)

I just returned from a dove release at a local church. It was hospices way of letting those who have passed that we Love and Miss them. As I sat I saw others new and very painful grief. Some could not even finish speaking, A lot of faces twisted and tormented with horrible loss of the ones that they Loved. I got up and spoke, few did. I told them that I am further in grief than most in this room. Though I have times of grief I have more times of joy. I told them that I would not be the person that I am not without both the love and grief that I have experienced.

It was then that I gave myself credit for how long I have come, yes I have said that told others how far I have come in my grief but those were mere words. I actually realized and felt how far I have come in my grief seeing tormented faces of new grief. I did not cry as some did...I smiled feeling oh so try lucky to have experienced that kind of special Love that few are lucky enough to.
