I found this originally at alive and mortal:
I hope the poem can bring some comfort to you as you deal with the various implications of your different losses, and yet they are similar…we all walk the path of loss, some of us affected (not afflicted, never afflicted – there was pleasure in our relationships) by cyberloss. The only affliction is that they ended too soon for us. There will be a time when the pain eases, it will still be, but it will lessen. Then the memories will come, if you allow them to. (That’s another post, though.) For now, I hope you enjoy the poem, and if you do, please thank Kim at alive and mortal for bringing it to my attention.
Wishing you peace and gentle days,
