No Words You Can Say

No words you can say for to console a person for the loss of a cherished one
A loved husband or wife or partner or daughter or son,
Aunt, Uncle, nephew or niece, or friend
Only time can truly heal grief why otherwise pretend
And so few go through life without bearing some cross
Without knowing of the grief that does come with great loss
A sorrow with some that does linger for years
That often does overflow in bouts of tears
Long after the funeral and the condolence words are said the grief does remain
Why mental sorrow does linger not hard to explain
Only photographs and mental images of one dear left to you to retain
And them you are never to meet in the flesh again
So few go through life without bearing some cross
And words of condolence will do little for your sense of loss.
