I woke up with a heavy heart today.

I tried to fight the tears but then gave up and cried and cried all day.

I just don’t understand why it hurts so, or maybe it’s just me, letting go…

I felt this grief coming, like a giant wave that swept me away, from my stable ground.

There’s nothing I could do, nothing to hold on to.

This wave tumbled me around and around,

and now I feel lost, like a drift wood on a sea shore.
