Above Grief

Look up,

look up

and see

beyond the

devastation

around you;

Look up,

look up

and see

the light,

the brightness

that comes

after the

dark.

Nothing

ends here,

nothing

stops here.

Rise

above your

grief, look up

with

gratitude

for

what came

before;

for

what comes

after,

for the

sun

that peers

through,

breaking through

gray clouds.

For

death

is never

an

ending.
