There is no rush

by Dagmar Wilson   Jan 2, 2018

Grief is not based on numbers
sorrow does not require a certain speed
it depends on the severity and individual,
some people don't care.
I am taking my time.

Unfortunately there is some baggage
I have to bring along
like I do every year,
no matter how hard you try
it might as well reside with me forever.

    I think every one carries baggage of varying sizes with them through their lives and the further you journey the pathway of life heavier it can become. Grief is something that affects people differently and takes varying length of times to come to terms with. I think that this really captures that. Best wishes Milly x

    This is great Dagmar. Grief cannot be measured, no one can dictate how you feel. Take all the time you need :-) x
