And Life Goes On.....


Twiles

Recommended Posts

New to these forums. Recently had to deal with a difficult loss. Found this poem on the internet. Several websites carry it. It really helped me realize that it's okay to view life differently after a loss of someone close to you. Matter of fact, that's the way it should be. To me, there is comfort in knowing that.

 

And Life Goes On...

 

A flower bursts full of life

Flourishes, whithers, then disappears

All within the blink of an eye

Yet life goes on...always the same

 

A bird enters the world with a song

Sings for a few seasons, then vanishes

All within the blink of an eye

Yet life goes on...always the same

 

A child draws his first breath

Learns, grows, then passes away

All within the blink of an eye

And life goes on...but never the same

I hope this is of some comfort,

Hello twiles,

welcome to ENA!

 

 

I'm sorry you were brought here under the circumstances you were...I too recently experienced a great loss and it was the reason I found myself here too.

 

Thank you for sharing the poem...

 

You are right, it's definitely okay to think about life differently when you experience a loss...in fact I think if we weren't affected in this way by it, something would be wrong! it serves a purpose...to help us reflect...find meaning that we sometimes don't search for when we are comfortably going along in life...

 

anyways, sending lots of love,

melly
