(re the loss of my long term therapist)

Six Children, Me, and One Heart

My own grief and loss is a hard enough burden to carry
But this grief is not just my own
I'm not the only one experiencing loss
There are six other hurting hearts inside
They are broken
They are confused
They miss "D" terribly
And I can feel their pain
I know that I only have one heart
And I know that what feels like their pain is really mine
But on the inside, it still feels like the pain of six separately grieving children
Six children, me, and one heart

Forgiveness is letting go of the hope that the past could have been any different --Unknown
