The Price We Pay

 

grief

disorder or disease

sign of weakness

some would say

but,

it is the price

we pay for living



an emotional, physical

spiritual necessity

part of who we are

the price you pay

……

for love



the cure for grief

it is to grieve

own it

hold it close

treasured, nurtured

it is the price

we pay for caring



the journey of life

requires travel luggage

grief is our carryon luggage

our constant companion

the price we pay

for being
