When we first lose someone we love through death there are so many emotions that we go through. Loss, hurt, anger, confusion, frustration, to name but a few. We feel numb, unable to communicate to people, others struggle to know how best to handle contact with us and tend to shy away to avoid this, when really all we need is a big cuddle and to know that there is support there when we come out of the other side of this mass of emotions.
I write poems to help people through this and I share them with family members and friends. The feedback I have received is amazing and so I have put in a collection for you to read. I hope these can help you and those close to you to get through the traumatic time that death brings to all those it touches.
Poetry is a unique and personal gift that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds. It can be a way to express your feelings, share your thoughts, or simply help someone close to you to get through the bleakest of days.
It’s a way to communicate your sympathy, to let them know you care, to let them know you are there for them whenever they need you. Words in a poem can be just as powerful as a hug or a phone call, just when needed,
