    A notion many fail to comprehend: you needn't grieve for show, grieve in what way is right for yourself. Some people do it by laughing, some by painting, some by writing. As long as they don't harm anyone (ie suicide, cutting, mass shootings, etc), constructive grief is necessary. Some people can visit the gravestones of loved ones, and others cannot. Just because you don't do what others do doesn't mean you grieve less nor disrespect their memory.
    Anyway, here I am repeating all that you already stated in your poem, albeit my clunky words are far less beautiful and impactful. Shout this from the mountaintops; and it's not only the grieving process that this poem points out, it's the importance of individuality. It should be in everything, from life choices to politics to poetry writing. We need to do it for ourselves.

    I don't know, you made me think with this poem, and I love that! A unique topic presented coupled with a great rhyme scheme and good intentions = an awesome poem. Loved it!

    Kitty, the good thing about your poems are they are unique. You never follow the crowd and whatever you write always brings comfort to us.

    An excellent sentiment, Kitty. I don't know if you have ever read the poem 'Do not stand at my grave and weep' but this reminds me of that. If you haven't, give it a read; it is wonderful.

    Take care and all the best as ever,

    Ben

    I enjoyed this a lot. Because this poem is kind of what death should be all about. Do not listen to what others think about you, the way you grieve any of that. I love the perspective of this piece, because in my eyes you could take it two ways. You are talking about a person whom you are close with.

    A person that has been in your life for a long time and that after you pass away will always have the memories you shared together.

    But-

    I think you are talking about people in general. Who will always have their loved ones in their hearts.

    Either way this is well written!

    Kitty, I liked this a lot. Death is such a hard concept for everyone to deal with. I agree with your thoughts and wishes for after you are gone. I want my kids to throw a party and celebrate, laugh and tell stories. I will be gone but will always live on.

    This is really beautiful, Kitty. We all have to go there. Truth is, when my gran died I have come to accept death as a beautiful thing...I believe in a life after death with the Lord and yes we should celebrate and remember the life of our departed. Well done.

    Beautiful moving poem that I can really relate to. My best friend passed away some years ago and she lives on in my heart. She lives on in her songs. Your poem touched my heart. Thank you.
